Articulated Eagle Mask
This beautiful eagle mask, by Kwakwaka’wakw artist Alfred Robertson, has an articulated beak that opens and closes with the pull of a string. It's hand-carved, painted, adorned with cedar bark strips and includes a custom cedar stand.
Born in 1950 in Kingcome Inlet, BC, Alfred Robertson now resides in Nanaimo. He learned to carve from his father, William Robertson, and from working alongside his brother, Sampson Robertson. Alfred now carves full-time, and works primarily in red and yellow cedar. In his spare time, he teaches carving techniques to elementary school children, preserving and sharing the traditions of his people. His daughter, Sarah Robertson, is also a carver in her own right.
