Another intricate piece of art by a highly talented artist:
19” circular yellow cedar OWL with WOLF above and MOUSEMAN below.
by Kwakiutl First Nation, Indigenous artist John Henry Hunt, originating from Alert Bay near Vancouver Island, Canada’s Pacific Northwest coast, British Columbia
Please have a close look to appreciate the quality and craftsmanship in this piece – truly incredible. He used black and gray color, still showing the beautiful color of the yellow cedar. Very powerful, very beautiful – this piece clearly makes every room. Just look at the deep carving lines, I’m providing close-ups, hopefully you can see the depth of the carving. The details and the expression is just fabulous.
John Henry adorned the thick piece of yellow cedar with the traditional cedar bark rope to give it a perfect frame. He also painted the rope in dark gray. The moon is signed at the back, made and prepared for wall hanging, hanger already attached.
Measurements: 19” diameter, 1 ½” thick
Meaning: Owls are associated with the souls of ancestors and are viewed with high respect. They symbolize wisdom, intuition and prophecies and sacred knowledge. The story goes that children have to be kept inside at night and are told not to cry too much because otherwise the owl may carry them away. Sometimes owls are said to carry messages from the beyond or deliver supernatural warnings to people.
