Another incredible piece of Indigenous Art by one of the best First Nations artist you can find!!!

Kwakiulth RAVEN PADDLE - designed, hand carved and hand painted by the Kwakwakaw'wakw First Nation Master carver Watawidi, TOM D. HUNT

This is a fantastic example of true Indigenous art - Superb quality craftsmanship, VERY powerful and at the same time elegant and rich expression. This kind of quality is truly hard to match - The carving lines are so deep and close to perfection, the painting just as perfectly executed - the choice of colors proves Tom's eye for design - it just works and is incredibly beautiful. 

The paddle is carved in front, signed at the back. The back shows the gorgeous yellow cedar Tom used. Just a master piece, all around and a Highlight for any collection. 

Meaning: The Raven is known to be the transformer, trickster and creator. In the Kwakwaka'wakw culture the Raven is known as the messenger of the sky and famous for being a somewhat mischievous glutton. He's always out to please himself and to have a good time. He's very adventurous.

Measurements: 5.7 ft. / 67 1/2 inch long, 8" wide - solid yellow cedar

Note: sorry, no overseas shipping available
