In Kwakwaka'wakw mythology, Komokwa is the very powerful chief of the Supernatural Undersea People. This large Komokwa mask is painted and carved in red cedar, by Master Carver Bill Henderson from the Kwakwaka'wakw Nation. The mask features cedar bark and 26 abalone inlays.

Bill Henderson is a very respected Northwest Coast Native Master Carver that is passing his experience and skill on to the next generation of carvers. His masks, bowls, paddles and other carvings are collected all over the world.

This outstanding silver and turquoise dragonfly pendant was carved by Cree artist Justin Rivard.

Justin Rivard was born in Nanaimo, BC on Vancouver Island and he is of Cree descent. In addition to being trained artistically as a carver, Justin is a trained jeweller. He is dedicated to applying his skills to new and unconventional forms, while using the same media of gold, silver and semi-precious stones.

For example, Justin has created carved business card holders, lighter covers, and cufflinks. Justin trained with Kwakwaka'wakw artist Ray Dumont for 16 years and has worked in Canadian, American and Scottish galleries.

The Native Bear Symbol represents strength, family, vitality courage and health. The bear is a thoughtful creature, independent and apparently distant, has little need for fellowship and is self-contained and strong-willed. A Bear is of great support and comfort to those who crave human company simply for personal reassurance rather than for the simple pleasure of being with friends. He makes lonely periods of life far easier.

This amazing hand carved and repousse (hammered) sterling silver bracelet was carved by Derek White from the Haida Nation.
