This is an absolute masterpiece by John Henry Hunt, a member of the Kwakiulth First Nations. His attention to detail and creativity is just unbeatable. The painting so powerful and close to perfection. The body of this wonderful piece of art is designed so it can be displayed in various ways.
John Henry did NOT use any screws - the wings and the eagle's head is held by dowels (perfectly fitting dowels)!!! The face of the eagle can be moved in different directions. It looks fantastic as a centerpiece on a table or a special place in the room, it clearly makes every room - or it would really wow your guests, displaying it at an entrance.It's prepared for wall hanging with 2 hangers attached, so it can hang both ways - or, as I said, looks great as centerpiece on a table or cabinet... The eagle is shown with wings spread, feather decoration with light blue tips on each wing. The body is fully carved in layers, showing the Hawk man and frog on top. The wings are fully and deeply carved on EACH side - the Raven's head, absolutely wonderfully detailed and so rich in expression. Measurements: 24" tall (depending on display), 22" wingspan, 7 deep.
John Henry Hunt was born in Alert Bay, a small fishing community off Vancouver Island. He credits his uncle Chief Tony Hunt and his grandfather Henry Hunt as his first teachers.
