Wow - powerful piece of Indigenous Art by Master artist Sarah Robertson from the Kwagiulth First Nation

SISIUTL / SEA SERPENT 

very deep carving, very detailed, perfect for any entrance or fireplace mantle - The Sisiutl is believed to provide protection from harm. The double headed Serpent is so rich in expression. She used beautful pine, painted it in black and red and stained the wood to accentuate the natural grain or texture of the wood. Just looks beautiful!

Meaning: The Sisiutl is a symbol for healing power and magic. It's closely associated with war and strength, the Sisiutl is known to be invulnerable and to provide protection from harm. The Sisiutl is one of the most powerful crests, and mythological creatures in the mythology of the Kwakwaka'wakw, Nuu-chah-nulth and various other Tribes and figures prominently in their art, dances and songs. 

Measurements: 4 ft. (47.5") x 7" x 1 1/2" (121 x 18 x 4 cm)
