Gorgeous SPRING SALMON by master artist Brian Bob from Nanoose Bay.
The carving is exceptional. so clean and elegant. This is a very powerful, impressive piece. Looks fabulous above fireplace or at entrance - or ...well, many places - it's just a great example of hand carved beautiful artwork from the First Nations of the Pacific Northwest.
The gorgeous wood (Sitka spruce) is stained with a dark brown, accentuating the natural grain of the gorgeous, clean wood. The eye of the salmon is inlaid, in the tail, more inlays. As always, Brian's carving lines are masterfully executed. It's made and prepared for wall hanging, carved in front, signed at the back, hanger already attached.
