HERON Sculpture, 3D, in base
signed, hand carved, hand painted, designed by Detreck George, a member of the Coast Salish First Nation. 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.
