Killer Whale (Orca) wall art carving by master artist Brian Bob from the Nootka First Nation
This piece truly is incredible - it's VERY big and massive - powerful presence, inlaid with many pieces of abalone (mother of pearl). Brian signed it at the back. Brian pays so much attention to details and the cuts are so deep and clean, it clearly shows his many many years of experience and his talent for this art. Just a gorgeous piece of Indigenous Art from the Pacific Northwest. The images are nice, but they still don't do it justice.
Measurements: 33 1/2" x 12" x 1 1/2" (85 x 30.5 x 4 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
