Absolutely beautiful little figurine
HAMATSA DANCER (hok-hok) by Gordon Scow, a member of the Kwakiulth First Nations, originating from Alert Bay, British Columbia's Pacific Northwest Coast
This piece is articulated, the beak opens up if you pull on the string with the piece of Abalone Shell. Really detailed and well thought through piece of art. The painting on the mask itself is very nicely done, clean lines, vibrant colors. The fully hand crafted wooden body is dressed with lots of wool and fiber. Toes and fingernails are painted in white. Just a beautiful piece all around and a great start for any native art collection.
Measurements: 8" x 4" x 2" (20 x 10 x 5 cm)
