Bracelet - Wild Woman

Artist: William Cook

This stunning Wild Woman sterling silver bracelet is hand carved by Northwest Coast First Nation artist William Cook. If you look on the sides of the Wild Woman, you can see the children on the sides inside her basket.

The Dzunuk̕wa "Wild woman of the woods" is the large family of giants that live at their homes in the far away mountains and forests. Although they can be male or female, in most legends she is female. Black in color, with bushy, unkempt hair and a pursed mouth through which she utters the cry, "Hu! Hu!" She was a terrifying and threatening creature. She carries a huge basket on her back in which she put disobedient children that she stole, taking them to her home to eat them. However, the children usually outwitted her, as she is vain, stupid and clumsy.

 Width: 1 1/2"
