Description

For sale is a Northwest Coast carved and painted bear rattle.

This carving is signed “Haida Bear Rattle Len Paquette”.

The rattle is made from cedar with a leather wrapped handle and mother of pearl shell for eyes.

Bear is one of the main figures in NWC art and mythology and is considered a close link to human kind. Their fierceness makes them guardians, protectors and helping spirits of warriors.

Rattles are percussive instruments used in shamanic & ceremonial contexts.

This rattle is 10″ L X 5 1/2″ W and in very good condition.

I have been selling authentic Northwest Coast Art on line since 1999 so buy with confidence.
