Description

Owl’ by Art Thompson – First Nations Northwest Coast Nuu-chah-nulth Art presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts.

Condition: no condition noted.

Description by Artist: “This Owl design  was first printed on a drum. It was commissioned by a First Nations woman from Whitehorse, in the Yukon. Snowy owls, a protected species in some areas, are a common sight in the North. This owl is depicted in mid-flight with eyes raised upwards towards the sky. As owls are nocturnal creatures this is night-flight, with a starry sky depicted in the background, Art Thompson’s unique style continues to evolve in new and interesting directions with this design.”
