This listing is for one new, hand-carved, Red Cedar paddle by First Nations Northwest Coast Native artist, Ross Henderson. Great hung vertically or horizontally, these paddles fit in those awkward areas: above doorways, on narrow walls, behind the couch. Two hung together horizontally looks really great! Each paddle measures 60″ long by 6″ wide and there are three designs available. Each paddle is made to order and may differ slightly from the images included here. Raven – A symbol of transformation and creation, the raven is a primary crest symbol in Northwest Coast Native culture School of Salmon – A symbol of the life cycle, there is no better gift for those fishermen/sailors/swimmers in your life when considering the significance of the paddle and salmon. Eagle – A symbol of friendship and pride, this design is quintessentially Vancouver Island and will “pop” on any wall. Cougar – A symbol of assertiveness and tenacity. Bear – A symbol of knowledge and teaching. Born in 1970, Ross resides in Fort Rupert, BC. As a teenager he was influenced by his brother, Jonathan Henderson. He works with Kwakwakawakw artist Trevor Hunt and has been seriously carving since 2002. He works in a traditional Kwakwaka’wakw style and enjoys carving masks, Hamat’sa masks and paddles. He prides himself on his clean lines and knowledge of Kwakiutl design. Keywords: “Haida mask”, “Haida Jewelry”, “totem pole”, “pacific northwest”, “wall hanging”.
