Absolutely gorgeous

"Sockeye Salmon" art carving by Neil Baker, a member of a large family of First Nations artists from the Coast Salish (Squamish) First Nations, originating from Vancouver Island.

Beautiful red cedar - so very detailed, clean cut-outs, highest quality craftsmanship - the color chosen is really vibrant and beautiful. Neil put a lot of work into this piece - the carving is truly excellent, made and prepared for wall hanging, hanger attached, carved in front, signed at the back.

Measurements: 15" x 5 1/2" x 1/4" (38 x 14 x 0.5 cm)

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.
