Fantastic piece of North American art - finest quality, from a master carver from the First Nations, living on Vancouver Island. A new masterpiece to show off in our native art gallery:

Brian Bob's Kingfisher - in diving position - just about to catch a fish....

wall art carving - the images don't do it justice - it's truly a superb piece of Indigenous Art. Thick solid piece of wood, the expression is so alive and wonderful. The kingfisher does show the salmon symbol on it's body - it has 2 pieces of Abalone inlays (Mother of pearl). The stain is polished and has been added to accentuate the natural grain of the wood. Carved in front, signed at the back, made and prepared for wall hanging - have a look....

Measurements: 22" x 11" x 1 1/4" (56 x 28 x 3.5 cm)

Meaning: The Kingfisher is a messenger for good luck to come. Kingfisher are very brave and bold, it will dive headlong into the water to catch small fish. It teaches us how to plunge into the unknown with confidence and not with fear. It is a symbol for success and prosperity
