Sun Moon Mask

$9,200.00 CAD

This Sun and Moon Mask is hand-carved by Kwakwaka'wakw artist Bill Henderson. It has been carved from yellow cedar and painted in black, light yellow, dark yellow, maroon, and white acrylic.

The Native Sun Symbol represents life-giving abundance with its warmth radiating healing and peace. The sun was freed and given back to the earth by the Raven, who released it out of its confining box. Since then it has given all humankind warmth, light, and life. It was once believed that one could reach the sun by climbing a chain of arrows and that one would get down by sliding down the rays.

The Native Moon Symbol is the protector and guardian of the earth. Its spirit watches over us and can change our moods.

The mask measures approximately 30 inches or 76 centimeters in diameter and 4 inches or 10 centimeters deep.

The price includes shipping to the USA and Canada. Please contact us if you would like a quote to have the mask shipped outside the USA and Canada.
