Amazingly powerful Art carving by Gino Seward, Kwagiulth First Nation just arrived in our native Art gallery:
made and prepared for wall hanging. Easy recognizable as one of Gino's pieces of Art - the cuts are deep and real, not much sanding, you can see the chips of the knife. it's stained with really dark stain to accentuate the natural grain of the wood. Lots of work in this beautiful gem. Images taken in sunlight. It's prepared for wall hanging but it's so thick, it does stand on it's own and looks great e.g. on your fireplace mantle....
Measurements: 12" x 5" x 1 1/2" (31 cm x 13 cm x 4 cm)
Meaning: The Bear is a symbol for power, courage, physical strength and leadership. Warrior's e.g. are known to wear bear claw necklaces which meant protection. In Haida culture the Bear is referred to as "Elder Kinsman" and was treated like a high ranking guest.
