HUK-HUK (bird) wall art carving

Meaning: The Huk-Huk is one of the mythological Hamatsa (Cannibal dance) birds. There are three of them: One is the Crooked Beak (Galokwudzuwis), a monsterous human eating bird that produces great fear. Then there is the Man-eating RAVEN (Baxbaxwalanuksiwe) who eats his victim's eyes - followed by The HUK-HUK (Huxwhukw) who uses it's long beak to open and eat it's victim.
