What a wonderfully detailed piece of Indigenous Art by John Henry Hunt from the Kwakiulth First Nations

BEAR sculpture

The bear is holding a raven in it's arms while a frog is sitting on top of it, the frogs hand's reaching or holding on to the bear's ears, so cute. This time John Henry used traditional colors, strong and powerful, still showing the beautiful color of the wood. The carving is truly exceptional.Very deep lines, very clean lines. Please have a close look. Did you see the bear's teeth? That was very difficult to accomplish and a lot of work. It proofs the artist is paying so much attention to details and clearly loves his work. He signed this beautiful piece at the back. Dated 2022. 

Measurements: 10 1/2" tall, the base is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" 

Meaning: The Bear is a symbol for power, courage, physical strength and leadership. Warrior's e.g. are known to wear bear claw necklaces which meant protection. In Haida culture the Bear is referred to as "Elder Kinsman" and was treated like a high ranking guest.
