Incredible piece of Indigenous Art!!!

Kwakiulth EAGLE PADDLE - designed, hand carved and hand painted by the Kwakwakaw'wakw First Nation Master artist TOM HUNT

This is a fantastic example of a truly elegant and VERY powerful expression of the EAGLE - powerfully painted vibrant colors. The cuts are very deep with extremely clean lines. You can clearly see the love the artist has for his art. The details are incredible. Please have a close look at the images, I let them speak for themselves. The back just shows off this beautiful yellow cedar and has the artist’s signature.

Measurements: 5.4 ft (66 inch) long, 8" wide at widest point - solid yellow cedar

Meaning The Eagle symbolizes grace, power and great intellect. It is a sacred and noble creature representing power and prestige to the First Nations people of the Northwest Coast. It symbolizes wisdom and has a special and direct connection to the creator. Eagles mate for life and are therefore also seen as a symbol of lasting love and dedication. It is told that the Eagle end their own life in despair when the mate is lost. Eagle feathers are used in the most important ceremonies, a display of respect, courage, Chieftainship and wisdom. The Eagle is the ruler of sky.

Note: no shipping overseas - Thank you
