Absolutely incredible piece of Indigenous Art - emerging from a gorgeous piece of red cedar

E'Mas (Ancestor) Mask, by Kolten Khasalus Grant, a member of the Kwakwakaw' wakw First Nations (please read bio provided below)

When used in potlatch or other West Coast native ceremonies, native dancers do take on the personification of the ancestors and creatures, representing the supernatural and the spiritual world during the dance. These E’mas masks are often present. This piece is an exceptionally beautiful example – highest quality craftsmanship.

The expression is haunting and riveting – very difficult to accomplish, only a very talented artist is able to do this. Kolten also clearly shows his love and passion for the art – his finish is so clean, the lines are superb and the "hair" with one braided strain on each side just add to the stunning face.

Measurements: wood: 12" x 9 1/2" x 6" (31 x 24 x 15 cm), total length 26"
