Thunderbird with full Killer Whale crown - Large wooden Mask

So much work went into this piece. Have a close look please. Hand carved, designed, hand painted, decorated with lots of cedar bark and Abalone - signed by Randy Stiglitz  - a world wide well known and highly sought after artist from the Pacific Northwest Coast of BC and a member of the Coast Salish First Nations. It's also signed by Randy's partner Janice Morin (Cree Nation). Janice herself is a highly respected artist and together with Randy, they are just a fantastic team. 

It's just a fabulous example of true Indigenous art. The painting is close to perfect, the carving superb. They also added a lot of the traditional cedar bark and adorned it with cedar rope. The carving quality is outstanding, as is the expression - just very powerful!
