Another gorgeous little Jewel:

OWL catching MOUSE MAN

by Kwakiulth First Nation artist John Henry Hunt, originating from Alert Bay on BC's Pacific Northwest Coast

So adorable - so detailed, so vibrant. Unique, new design and carved and painted with so much love to detail. The expression is truly beautiful. Playful, powerful, serious (have a look at the owl's face) and cute (see the little mouse man)... John Henry's little carvings are difficult to find and highly sought after. Every time I meet him, he manages to surprise me with a new design. Please have a look at each image, I'm providing close-ups. There are very few Indigenous artists who are capable to master this intricate and incredible craftsmanship. 

Measurements: 7" tall, base is 4" x 3 1/2" (18 x 10 x 9 cm)

Meaning: The Owl is associated with the souls of ancestors and are viewed with high respect. They symbolize wisdom, intuition and prophecies and sacred knowledge.  On the Northwest Coast, the owl is often used as a totem pole crest. It's also very often part of dances among the tribal dance traditions.

Note: overseas shipping available, costs added at check-out
