Have a look, this is a very interesting and very well carved piece of Indigenous Art.
Cedar WOLF MASK on cedar base, by Joseph Mickey, a member of the Nootka/Nuuh-hah-nulth (Hesquiath) First Nation.
The craftsmanship is excellent, have a look at the teeth - this is not easy to accomplish. the painting is clean, the darving deep and detailed. The wolf is adorned with fur and presented on a wooden (cedar) base. It's signed underneath the base. It's not a new carving and does show some minor signs of gentle handling and aging which only gives it more character.
Measurements: 14" x 6" x 5" (without the fur), total height: 15" (36 x 15 x 13 cm / 38 cm high)
Meaning: The Wolf represents loyalty, strong family ties, good communication, education, understanding and intelligence. Of all land animals, the Wolf has the strongest supernatural powers and is the most accomplished hunter. The Wolf is a very social and communicative creature; he uses body movement, touch and sound.
