This fabulous Salmon Mask is Top Shelf. Deep cuts and very unique. An Excellent Example of Authentic Quality Canadian 1st Nations Indigenous Art. Forsale is a Northwest Coast cedar carved and painted double salmon mask. In NWC culture, salmon is honoured and celebrated by all coastal peoples: the fish serves as a powerful symbol of regeneration, self-sacrifice and perseverance. This fabulous mask is a good size at 12 1/2"H X eleven W X 4 1/2" D and in veryterrific condition. The depth and skill of the cuts is indicative of a verytalented carver and I have tried to show this in the images. The grain of thecedar brings out and enhances the beauty of the mask. The mask is signed “Aubrey LaFortunesalmon mask 96”. Aubrey is from the Salish tribe in Victoria on Vancouver Island, B.C. This is a carousel quality carved and painted mask that wouldbe a great addition to any native art collection.
