Interesting piece

KOLUS Mask / HEAD DRESS

attributed to the Wei Wai Kum First Nation, originating from Campbell River on Vancouver Island, British Columbia's Pacific Northwest Coast, but since the mask is not signed, I can't confirm the artist 

This piece has probably been worn at a ceremony held in Campbell River in 2018 - it still has the inner cushions and linens. The mask is adorned with the traditional cedar bark rope, it's handcarved out of solid wood from the cedar tree, is adorned with feathers, painted in powerful colors, very clean lines and clean carving. The size is really impressive and you can clearly imagine how majestic and powerful it was presented, I believe in the Kwanwatsi Big House which means House of Thunder. The Big House has a custom Thunderbird and Sisiutl on the front and four traditional totem poles inside representing the different family groups in the Wei Wai Kum First Nation.

Measurements 21" long, 12" tall, 9" wide (53.5 x 31 x 23 cm)
