Very impressive and gorgeous female SALMON with Eagle spirits and Salmon eggs by master artist Brian Bob from the Nootka Nation

Fully hand carved, stained, inlaid with so many pieces of abalone....The carving is exceptional. The gorgeous wood (sitkus spruce) is stained with a grey-ish dark wash, accuanting the natural grain of the gorgeous, clean wood. As always, Brian's carving lines are so clean and deep - This piece makes every room or just makes a fabulous impression in an entrance area! It's made and prepared for wall hanging, carved in front, signed at the back, hanger already attached.
