Tony Hunt Jr. Northwest Coast American Indian Kwaguilth Owl Mask 1988
This hand-carved cedar mask was made by Tuny Hunt Jr. in 1988 and is signed by the artist, dated and titled "Kwagiulth Owl". It was purchased in a Northwest Coast Indian art gallery in Vancouver, B.C. in 1988 and has been in my collection since then.
Dimensions are 9 1/4" high by 10 1/4" wide by 7" deep with cedar bark side tassels 15" long. Condition is excellent. Has a tiny dent on bridge of beak and tiny paint nick on left eye brow (see closeups). Otherwise in perfect condition. Has a strong cord fastened to two screw eyes on back for hanging (original to mask). Tony Hunt Jr. is a contemporary Northwest Coast Kwaguilth artist born in Victoria, B.C. in 1961. He comes from a lineage of master wood carvers going back to his great grandfather. He learned to carve from his father Tony Hunt Sr. His work has been exhibited widely and is sought by collectors world wide.
