Isn't this incredible? What a masterpiece - by Silas Coon, a member of the Kwakiulth First Nations, taught by George Hunt Jr. and Silas Cousin Beau Dick

Where to start.... ok, on top is the EAGLE, sitting on the head of the BEAR above the KILLER WHALE. The bear shows the THUNDERBIRD in it's body, The whale shows the FROG and the SUN on it's tail, and did you see the little HUMAN face on the Killer Whale's blow hole?

Inlaid with 12 (!) pieces of Abalone - and I mean, inlaid, not glued on top, the carving lines are exceptionally detailed and clean, the copper painting on top of the dark stain is amazing - and still showing the natural grain of the wood. All fully hand made, carved, painted and designed. Made and prepared for wall hanging, signed at the back, hanger attached. This piece really makes every room!!!!
