2010. This sculpture in Red Cedar depicts 2 wolves on the back of a killer whale. The piece speaks to the relationship between killer whales and wolves in nature and spirit. Killer whales are said to be the wolves of the sea, top predators travelling in loyal family groups. The stories from northwest coast first nations about killer whales transforming into wolves as they come ashore inspired this rendition. The wolves on the back of the whale exemplify the potential of transformation in all of us. We are multi-dimensional beings, carrying with us our ancestors and spirit guides at all times.
The finish is pure tung oil and super blonde shellac. This is carved from one piece of wood and is mounted on a lazy susan so it rotates.
