Small Hummingbird Plaque
Artist: Brian Bob
NorthWest Coast First Nations artist Brian Bob hand carved these delicate Hummingbird plaques from Western red cedar. Hummingbirds are symbols of good luck and fortune. They measure 12 inches in length, 4 inches in width and 1 inch in height.
Each hummingbird plaque will vary slightly because they were all done by hand and will never be exactly alike.
About The Artist
My name is "Qwuyutaupool", which means "police of wolves". I have been carving since 1980. I was inspired by totem pole carver "Tom Touchie" and canoe carver "Wallace Touchie" and have worked to honour my heritage through art.
I was encouraged by my mother, "Fran" from Nuu-chah-nulth Nation and my father, "Wilson" from the Coast Salish Nation to give contemporary form to ancestral designs. Through my art, I hope to create a window into the rich culture of my people.
