Unique, highly collectable and different
Finest quality and superb craftsmanship by Bear (Doug) Horne from the Tsawout (Coast Salish) First Nation:
This 3D sculpture is hand carved and it's ONE SOLID PIECE of bass wood. The frog is not glued or in any way mounted onto the base - it's ONE piece! Isn't the expression fantastic? This frog clearly has some fun and is enjoying life...
Clean carving lines, beautiful clean wood, polished and sanded. This piece truly doesn't need any paint, it looks alive and is clearly a proof of Doug's love for this art. He signed and dated it underneath. He is such a talented artist and his works are easy recognizable. You can also see the influence Doug's dad Doug LaFortune had in his works, but Bear found his own style and clearly developed a fine eye for design. Have a look
Measurements: 14" x 6" x 2 1/4"
Meaning: The Frog is a very important Symbol in the Northwest Coast Art and Culture. Since he is living in two worlds, water and land, the Frog is revered for his adaptability, knowledge and power to traverse worlds and inhabit both, the natural and the supernatural. Frogs are used by Shamans as spirit helpers who provides the voice of the people. Frog's songs are believed to contain divine power and magic. When a frog is touching his tongue with another creature (which is often shown in Native Art) it represents the exchange of knowledge and power.
