Pendant - Wild Woman
Artist: Harold Alfred
This stunning sterling silver Hummingbird pendant is hand carved by Northwest Coast First Nation artist Harold Alfred.
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.
Measurements: 1 1/2" x 1"
