FREE shipping to US and Canada
Fantastic piece, absolutely superb quality
Hand carved, Hand painted, designed by our late dear friend and mentor John Livingston (adopted) Kwakwaka'wakw First Nation
The carving and painting is absolutely exceptional, typical John Livingston, close to perfection. He paid so much attention to details and made sure, everything is just right. The sound, the fit into the base, the balance, the expression, wonderful. Even the base is absolutely marvelous. The eyes of the cormorant are inlaid with dark blue glass beads (possible trade beads, but I'm not sure).
John signed the piece underneath the base, dated 1995.
Measurements: 12" long, 8" high in base, 4" wide
