13" Carving of The Wild Woman of the woods (Dzunukwa) by David Knox

This is a fantastic piece! Finest First Nations Art from the Pacific Northwest Coast of Canada. This large Mask of the  Wild Woman (Dzunukwa) was hand carved, hand painted and danced in Fort Rupert, British Columbia, Vancouver Island by David Mungo Martin Knox (great grandson of Chief Mungo Martin). See the pictures.

Highest Quality carving, adorned with horse hair, painted powerful in black and dark red (most images are taken in sunlight, image# 11 shows the color indoor)  - truly amazing piece of true Indigenous Art!

The wild woman of the woods (Dzunukwa) has long wild hair and wears a large basket on her back to carry away unwary children which she finds in her travels. Although she has children of her own, she collects the children and after she captured them, she tries to take them to her remote house in the woods, but the children always manage to outwit her and escape. Her power is so strong that her very presence causes every mortal who see's her to be scared. 

Measurements: 13" tall, 16" wide incl. ears, 7" deep  - Condition: fabulous
