"Mistamekwak" - Whales - Northern Cree
Killer Whales
Killer Whale Detail

Many years ago I studied NW Coastal style art under Marvin Oliver while living in Seattle WA.

This wonderful Killer Whale family is of my own design based on NW Coastal style of art.

This wall medallion (wall hanging) is approx. 42" x 37" and is sewn using heavy 100% wool melton.

The buttons are all 100% natural shell and some are antiques. Shells are 1/8" ro 1 1/4" in size. Dark red salmons protecting their eggs migrate along the black borders.

The borders represent the longhouse roof and sides, thus the bottom is left 'open'.

There are approximately 600 natural shell buttons on this piece. Killer whales used with permission.

A sleeve for wall hanging using a rod is on the back. The back is fully lined with 100% cotton fabic for proctecting the stitching. Enjoy!

PRICE: SOLD to a collector in Lakeside WA state.
