I have been commissioned to carve many different animals, including frogs, turtles, eagles, hawks, owls, wolves and pigs. But everyone’s favorite seems to be BEARS. I always have a few made up. Just call or email to discuss price and shipping.
The cedar tree was of great importance to many Native American tribes. Northwestern tribes used hollowed-out logs of red cedar to make their imposing fishing and war canoes which could be as long as 60 feet. They also built their homes from cedar planks and carved their spectacular totem poles and other important cultural artwork like wooden masks and bentwood boxes from cedar wood. They also made clothing, textiles and fine-grained basketry from cedar root fiber and shredded cedar bark.
Some Indian tribes have a saying:
Cypress will last one year longer than Stone.
Cedar, one year less...
