Hand carved, one piece of wood: EAGLE and KILLER WHALE with SPIRIT HELPER Sculpture
3D Sculpture, truly superb craftsmanship, highest quality carving on bass wood! Bear has such a great eye for design and so many years of experience in carving. His pieces of art are today highly sought after and simply stand out due to their elegance and expression. The wood does have some dark spots in the grain which gives it even more character. The lines are very precise and deep. The little spirit helper in the Killer Whale's tail and the salmon egg symbol on the back of the Eagle are just adding it up - gorgeous and authentic Indigenous art at it's best!!!
