Salish Owl

Carved black walnut

4’ diameter; 9.5” deep

Artist/Curatorial Statement

My Inspiration for this piece is my connection to our natural world. The Walnut (tree) grew within our traditional territory. Our Coast Salish tradition teaches us to respect all living things. It is an honor for me to portray our Ancestor who connects us to the Spirit World.
