Fantastic carving of a
Killer Whale with Eagle Spirit by the Kwakiulth First Nation Artist Gino Seward
This piece is fully knife finished, no sanding, you can clearly see the knife marks, just incredible. Gino really puts so much love and work in every single piece of his art. Very deep carving, stained in dark brown (images taken in sunlight) and polished solid thick piece of wood. The stain Gino applied just accentuates the beautiful grain of the wood, very impressive piece of Art and so easy recognizable as one of Gino's pieces. Made for wall hanging, carved at the front, signed at the back. The cuts are so deep, just unbelievable. You can clearly see the chip-marks from the knife.
Measurements: 16" x 8" x 1 1/2" (41 x 20 x 4 cm)
Meaning: The Killer whale is a symbol for romance and harmony as Whales mate for life. The Whale is very family oriented and known to travel in large groups, never to be alone. They symbolize great luck and happiness, community and protection. They are a known to always be working together, take care of each other and to always help and protect each other. The Eagles also 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.
