Native Carved Eagle Totem
This beautifully Hand carved totem Pole by West Coast First Nations artist Mr. Gino Seward measures 12 Inches in height and 4 inches in width and depth. With bold lines and designs wrought in tradition, Gino's Coast Salish and Kwakuitl background shine through in his artwork.
The noble Eagle is seen as a symbol of power and prestige. Eagle also has a strong connection to peace. This species is still plentiful in the Pacific Northwest. They have long been a source of artistic inspiration for both traditional and contemporary Native artists.
The Eagle is considered an important Clan crest and is frequently depicted on totem poles, masks, prints and jewellery
Gino Seward began carving at the age of ten, and has now been carving for over 20 years. He credits his grandfather, William Robertson, and his cousin, Jackson Robertson, with inspiring him to carve. Gino particularly enjoys carving in yellow cedar. He is known for his deep, detailed style.
