Killer Whale Paddle by Laurence Scow

This paddle was carved from yellow cedar and detailed with acrylic paint by Kwakwaka'wakw artist Laurence Scow. The design is of a killer whale. The Whale is a popular symbol for romance and family. Killer Whales, like Wolves, stay with their families and live in communities, hunting as well-organized packs. Indeed, the Killer Whale is said to have originated from a single great white wolf that leaped into the sea and transformed itself into a Killer Whale. Paddle measures 60 inches long by 6 wide and about 1.5 deep.
