BEAR AND SALMON
designed, fully hand carved, fully hand painted by Chief Terry Horne from the Yakweakwioose Band of the Coast Salish First Nations on Canada's Pacific Northwest Coast. Please take the time to read his biography provided below, very important.
You can clearly see many years of experience and love for this art in this piece. Have a close look please. Chief Terry used red cedar which The eyes of the bear and the salmon are inlaid (inlaid, not glued on top!) with Abalone, the painting is very clean and very vibrant. I just love the black, red and white, but especially the turquoise accents. It just turns the piece into a real centerpiece. The carving lines are extremely deep and clean. I'm providing close-ups, but still, the images don't do it justice. This piece adds importance and value to any native art collection and just looks stunning on the wall!!
It's signed at the back, made and prepared for wall hanging, hanger already attached.
Measurements: 17 1/2" diameter, 1" thick.
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. The Salmon symbolizes prosperity, renewal and fertility. They are one of the most important and highest respected animals of all since they have been the primary food source from the beginning of time to the Northwest Coast First Nations.
