Another incredible powerful piece of Indigenous art
SUN Portrait Mask - Raven awakens the light
designed, hand carved, hand painted by master artist Randy Stiglitz from the Coast Salish, Sechelt Native Band. As always, you can clearly see the artist's experience and talent in this gorgeous piece of art. So very detailed!!!! The Raven, holding the sun in it's beak is carved intricate and beautifully on the forehear of the sun's face with the raven's wings adorning it.
The abalone inlaid eyes of the sun are just adding to the power of this mask. On top of that, the whole mask is richly inlaid with large pieces of Abalone, I counted 16 (!) pieces. Very vibrant colors, very clean lines in carving and painting. The sun's face is adorned with the traditional cedar bark rope, the finished up with lots of black horse hair.... fabulous. Just everything you could be looking for in a piece from the First Nations of the Pacific Northwest.
Signed on the inside. Randy used Alder for this piece.
