4' long 3D cedar canoe panel hand carved and painted, and inlaid with abalone. The artist based this design on an old photo he saw of his ancestors, masked travelling in a canoe to a Potlatch.
The canoe has two human faces carved on it and the bow is an eagle head. There are 3 paddlers - a Raven with a butterfly on his beak, and an Eagle and a Wolf. A Baby Eagle sits on the stern facing backwards. The Wolf and the Eagles have crystals jutting out of their foreheads. Sitting on the bow is a box representing a bentwood box. It's carved on the top, the sides and ends, the bottom, and the inside of the lid - a wolf, ravens, eagles, an eagle dancer, a hand, a salmon, a waterbird. Inside the box is a tiny rattle.
