Mother Bear Mask with little cub

by master artist Randy Stiglitz, a member of the Coast Salish First Nation, originating from Pender Harbor, Sechelt Band, together with his wife Janice Morin, also a very talented and well known First Nations artist. The mask is signed by both artists at the back, dated 2021. Please check out both biography's provided on this site.

The Bear mask is carved in such great detail. Randy didn't sand this piece but knife-finished it instead, you can clearly see all the little cuts which shows how much work he put into his artwork. The bear mother is carrying a little bear cub on his head, so cute and beautiful. The Bear is decorated with lots of cedar bark and cedar rope. The eyes and cheeks of the little cub and the mother are inlaid with pieces of abalone (mother of pearl).

The bear is carved in the old Kwak'waka stye. It's a little smaller than their usual masks, but it makes up for it in Quality. Just a great piece to start or add to your collection. 

Measurements: Total height incl. cedar bark: approx. 21" (54 cm), the mask itself is 11" x 8" x 6" (28 x 20 x 15 cm)

Meaning: 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.
