| Leaping Whale is a 28" X 16" wall plaque carved in pine with hammered copper inlays. Many aspects of this carving are based on Coastal Salish traditional artistic concepts. |
The whale represents long life, not so much in terms of time, but in how you live your life, to the fullest, in every moment. The Salmon Spirit within the whale, represents survival, continuity and fertility of body, mind and spirit. The hammered copper within the designs represents a wealth of understanding.
This plaque and the interpretation are the creation of the artist Herb Rice.
