Killer Whale (Orca) wall art carving by master artist Brian Bob from the Nootka First Nation
This piece truly is ibeautiful, inlaid with abalone (mother of pearl). Brian's design of these orca's is really great, he 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. Brian stained in a light blue and "washed" the stain so the grain and color of the wood does come through. Depending on how the light is hitting it it has a little green tone to it due to the wood coming through. Really a great touch. He used Sitka Spruce for this piece because of it's nice grain.
Measurements: 22" x 11" x 1/2" (58 x 28 x 2.5 cm)
