This Whale Hunter Mask by Tom D. Hunt from the Kwakwaka´wakw Nation is hand-carved from red cedar, painted in acrylic, and finished with horsehair.
Tom D. Hunt, also called Watawidi, is the son of Hereditary Chief George Hunt and Mary Hunt. Tom began apprenticing in Kwakwaka'wakw art with his father at the age of 12 and later worked with his brother George Hunt Jr. When he was a little bit older, Tom spent time working with his late maternal grandfather, Sam Henderson, in Campbell River, and learned the traditional artistic style of the 'Nakwaxda'xw Nation (Blunden Harbour).
This mask is approximately 14 inches or 35 centimeters high, 15 inches or over 38 centimeters in width, and 10 inches or over 25 centimeters in depth.
