Isn't this a beautiful piece?
by Kwakiulth First Nation artist Rupert Scow. originating from Alert Bay, a small island just off Vancouver Island on the Pacific Northwest.
Solid piece of cedar. The painting is truly vibrant, it's one of Rupert's earlier pieces of art. The carving shows highest quality craftsmenship. Rupert really paid lots of attendtion to details and expression. I think he mastered it beatifully - the owl is really intense and powerful and mysteries at the same time. Decorated with feathers and the traditional cedar bark (minor loss on the cedar bark). The yellow and green on the white background together with the black accents - really works. Prepared for wall hanging, great condition.
Measurements: 13" x 11" x 8"
