This piece is HUGE - the images don't do it justice!

4 ft (48") large SALMON with Eagle spirits by master artist Brian Bob from Nanoose Bay.

Truly a special piece - one of the most beautiful pieces I have seen in a while. The carving is exceptional. The gorgeous wood (sitkus spruce) is stained with a light but still vibrant blue, accentuating the natural grain of the gorgeous, clean wood. The eyes of the eagle spirits are inlaid with Abalone, as is the eye of the salmon. As always, Brian's carving lines are so clean and deep - the expression, amazing! It's made and prepared for wall hanging, carved in front, signed at the back, hanger already attached. This is a piece to impress - it clearly makes EVERY room!!!

Measurements: 48" long, 15" high, 1" thick (no overseass shipping available)

Note: For full disclosure: The lower jar of the salmon had a minor restoration (professionally done by the artist) - invisible, unless you know it!!! Please see iclose-up image provided. 

Meaning: The Salmon symbolizes prosperity, renewal and fertility. They are one of the most important and highest respected animals of all since they have been the primary food source from the beginning of time to the Northwest Coast First Nations.
