Beautiful piece of authentic and traditional Indigenous art

Eagle Totem by Coast Salish artist Howard LaFortune Jr.

Hand carved, polished, very clean lines, strong expression, just a gorgeous piece of Indigenous Art. Please have a close look at the cedar he used. Lots of character in this piece - the grain is wonderful, showing the age of the wood. Solid piece, hollowed out a bit at the back. 

Howard took a break from carving but is back, and we are very pleased and honored to present him in our native art gallery. You can clearly see that he has a lot of experience in this art. He developed his own style of carving over the years while keeping tradition and history in mind. Howard is part of a large and very well known family or artists, son of Howard LaFortune Sr. He signed the totem at the back. Just a fabulous piece. 

Measurements: 24" x 8 1/2" x 7

Meaning: The Eagle symbolizes grace, power and great intellect. It is a sacred and noble creature representing power and prestige to the First Nations people of the Northwest Coast. It symbolizes wisdom and has a special and direct connection to the creator.
