Another beautiful, very intricate and detailed hand carved piece of art from the Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest

HERON - graceful patience

wall art carving by master artist Silas Coon from the Kwakiulth First Nations. 

Silas used his favorite color copper on dark brown stain which accentuates the natural grain of the wood. He then inlaid it with little pieces of abalone (mother of pearl). He is so matriculate and pays so much attention to details, it always amazes me. 

Have a close look at all the details - it's just gorgeous! A quick side-note: The artist signed the piece at the back, he called it "herring" - but I think  he meant heron catching a herring...:o)

Measurements: 16" tall, 5" wide, 1/2" thick 

Meaning: In the native culture of the Pacific northwest coast First Nations, the heron is known to be a "lucky charm" for successful fishing. He is a symbol for grace and elegance, patience and good luck. At the same time, heron's are known to be loner and in some tribes are associated with weakness for flattery and vanity. 

Note: overseas shipping available, costs added at check-out
