5ft Paddle - Orca
Artist: Ross Henderson
Kwakwaka'wakw First Nation artist Ross Henderson hand carved and painted this stunning 5ft Owl paddle from red cedar.
The traditional carved paddles are used by many West Coast Natives to steer and paddle the large cedar canoes in the coastal waters of the Northwest Pacific. Native Paddles are also used during ceremonial dances.
The whale is a symbol of great strength, bravery, family and unity.
