Fine porcelain bowl with “Orca” design by Nuxalk & Nuu-chah-nulth artist Kelly Robinson. “The Orca, also known as killer whale, is the lord of the oceans and a symbol of long life. It is believed that great chiefs turn into Orcas when they pass onto the nether world.” Bowl comes in gift box with information about the artist & design.
Kelly Robinson was born in Nanaimo, British Columbia. His roots and family origin are in Bella Coola, BC with descendants from both the Nuxalk and Nuu-chah-nulth nations. He was exposed to First Nations artwork from an early age and was always interesting in learning and refining the art — specifically the unique design forms of the Nuxalk. Under the guidance of his uncle, noted master carver, Alvin Mack, Kelly has developed his own techniques in creation of two and three dimensional art forms.
Bowl size approximately 9 cm high x 20 cm wide (3.5″ x 7.75″). Dishwasher and microwave safe.
