Study of a Tlingit Box – 32” circular wall art carving – masterpiece

Title: The Eagle, Killer Whale and flicker (Woodpecker) - by master artist Kolten Khasalus Grant from the house of Lilawagila from Gwa'yi (Kingcome Inlet)

In the artists own words: "The design is from a Tlingit ceremonial box. Represented in this piece are multiple animals and entities, including EAGLE, KILLER WHALE and FLICKER (woodpecker)

It represents the person or chief’s family crests from their creation story. The purpose of this is to allow the ancestors to look through as if it is a window. The curves on the design only allow positive energy to come through, filtering negativity. As far as the colors used: The negative space meaning the bare wood is TIME, the black is the UNIVERSE and the red is the BLOOD of my ancestors to get me where I am today"

Measurements: 32" diameter, 1” thick
