Gorgeous, elegant, powerful and graceful
yellow cedar HERON Sculpture, double sided carved, in base
signed, hand carved, hand painted, designed by Detreck George, a member of the Coast Salish First Nation. He sadly passed away in May 2021 and will be missed dearly. Detreck used gorgeous yellow cedar, painting the heron in traditional and powerful black and red, then added a light blue base to it. The heron can be taken off the base. It's signed underneath. As always, Detreck proofs to be a master of this art, very clean lines, deep and precise. He captured the expression of the heron, waiting to catch a fish just perfectly.
Measurements: 22" high, heron itself is 5 1/2" wide, 1 1/2" thick, base is 8 1/4" in diameter (55 x 14 x 4 cm, base 21 cm)
Meaning: Herons are symbols of good luck and patience in many Native American tribes. Especially on the Northwest Coast, if Native American fishermen see a heron, it is a good sign for a successful fishing trip. Like cranes, Indian herons are also sometimes associated with vanity and a weakness for flattery.
