Another detailed, large and superb piece by North American Kwakiulth First Nation artist Gino Seward

EAGLE and BEAR, massive wall art carving - stunning piece!

Beautiful, carved in front, signed at the back with carved initials, prepared for wall hanging, hanger already attached. The details and depth in the carving is truly incredible, easy recognizable as one of Gino's pieces of art - he has developed his own style of carving, doesn't do much sanding which is nice, you can clearly see the chip marks of the knife. Really thick and solid piece of wood - and the grain, visible through the dark stain, truly accentuates the natural beauty of the wood. Images taken in sunlight, stain is dark brown. 

Measurements: 37" x 8" x 2" (94 x 20 x 5 cm)

Meaning:The Eagle symbolizes grace, power and great intellect. It is a sacred and noble creature representing power and prestige to the First Nations people of the Northwest Coast. It symbolizes wisdom and has a special and direct connection to the creator. The Bear is a symbol for power, courage, physical strength and leadership. Warrior's e.g. are known to wear bear claw necklaces which meant protection. In Haida culture the Bear is referred to as "Elder Kinsman" and was treated like a high ranking guest
