Very nice piece of Art by female First Nations Artist Sarah Robertson from the Kwagiulth First Nation

HUK-HUK Dance RATTLE on wooden stand

Beautifully hand carved, adorned with the traditional cedar bark and beautifully painted in vibrant colors, still showing the beautiful grain of the wood. The base is pine,  painted and signed underneath. The sound is very powerful - just a fabulous piece of Indigenous Art. 

Measurements: 14" x 2" x 5", total height incl. cedar bark 10" (36 x 5 x 13/26 cm)

Meaning: The Huk-Huk is one of the mythological Hamatsa (Cannibal dance) bird masks. There are three of them: One is the Crooked Beak (Galokwudzuwis), a monsterous human eating bird that produces great fear. Then there is the Man-eating RAVEN (Baxbaxwalanuksiwe) who eats his victim's eyes - followed by The HUK-HUK (Huxwhukw) who uses it's long beak to open and eat it's victim.
