What a beauty!!!

Have a look at the expression in this superb piece of Indigenous Art:

New Moon - Portrait Mask by master artist Kolten Khasalus Grant from the house of Lilagawila from Gwa'yi

Just an exceptionally beautiful piece - Kolten chose the perfect piece of cedar for it. Have a close look at the grain in the wood. He painted the Moon's facial features in a light blue-ish/grey which just gives it this mesmerizing and captivating look. Have a close look at the eyes... 

The carving is as always close to perfection, the moon is sanded and waxxed, flawless!!! A real masterpiece of authentic and fully hand carved art from the First Nations of the Pacific Northwest. Signed at the back, prepared for wall hanging.

Measurements: 14" x 14" x 4" (36 cm x 36 cm x 10 cm)

Meaning: The Moon is associated with transformation since it controls the tides and illuminates the dark. It is seen as a guardian spirit. Moon and wife sun are the bringer of good luck and plentiful food. Moon's facial expression is always more delicate and serene than Sun.
