Incredible!!!!

A remarkable and unique piece of art by the Kwakiulth First Nation artist Silas Coon from Kingcome Inlet. Silas is specialized in Miniature carvings and his attention and love to details and perfection is clearly visible on this piece. 

Eagle transforming into Wild Woman

So many details on this piece - let's start on the top: The eagle mask is inlaid with little abalone pieces so the eyes are really outstanding and mesmerizing. When pulled on the string (which also has a "scull" attached to it) at the back, the eagle opens up and the wild woman emerges with her hands shown on the inside of the eagle mask. In the front the figurine carries a Raven mask, the raven mask is holding a "copper" in it's beak. On each shoulder is a miniature portrait mask of a human attached. The right hand is holding 3 little shells and yes, another "scull" mask miniature, on the left hand is another piece of "copper", carved out of wood and yes, another scull mask miniature. The body is wearing a cape and skirt made from the traditional cedar bark. The hands itself doe have cedar rope with the little masks attached. 

The piece is signed underneath the base - please have a close look at the images, I try to show each and every detail in close-ups. 

Measurements: 12" x 5" x 3 1/2"
