Another beautiful piece by master artist Doug Horne from the Coast Salish
EAGLE paddle, very clean, elegant, powerful painting in simple white which looks so beautiful on this clean piece of red cedar. The carving lines are superb, deep cuts, you can easy see the knife finishing on the back of the paddle - excellent craftsmanship = It's easy recognizable as one of Doug's pieces of art, contemporary and traditional at the same time. Sgned and dated at the back. Have a look at the images please, they speak for themselves...
Measurements: 40" x 5 1/2" x 1/2" (101 x 14 x 1.5 cm)
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.
