Hok-Hok art carving, inlaid with large piece of abalone
hand painted, hand carved, just stunning quality. The carving lines are close to perfect, the painting so maticoulos, Silas pays so much attention to details. Once you saw a few of his carvings, you can clearly recognize his style. He loves to use copper and dark brown colors or many of his carvings, but on this one, he used dark green, black, red and a light gray, just the perfect combination. Signed at the back, Silas used pine, made and prepared for wall hanging, hanger attached....Have a look.....

Meaning: The Huk-Huk (or Hok-Hok) is one of the mythological Hamatsa (Cannibal dance) bird masks. There are three of them: One is the Crooked Beak (Galokwudzuwis), a monsterous human eating bird that produces great fear. Then there is the Man-eating RAVEN (Baxbaxwalanuksiwe) who eats his victim's eyeballs - followed by The HUK-HUK (Huxwhukw) who uses it's long beak to crack open human skulls.... yes, it's messy....
