Another gorgeous piece by master artist Brian Bob from Vancouver Island

Killer Whale emerging from the ocean

so beautiful! Superb carving, incredible clean piece of cedar, inlaid with Abalone. Thick and solid piece, looks great hanging on the wall, but also looks great standing on fireplace mantle or your entrance - just a fabulous wow-piece!!! As always, the expression and the design is so unique - truly superb craftsmanship. Every time I visit the artist, he surprises with new designs and it's always such a pleasure to chat with him about them. He is very knowledgeable and is always happy to share stories and history. Carved in front, prepared for wall hanging and signed with his carved "B" at the back. 

Measurements: 19" x 7" x 1 1/4" (48 x 18 x 3 cm)

Meaning: The killer whale is a symbol for romance and harmony as Whales mate for life. The Whale is very family oriented and known to travel in large groups, never to be alone. They symbolize great luck and happiness, community and protection. They are a known to always be working together, take care of each other and to always help and protect each other.
