Two-Figure Talking Stick
This cedar wood Talking Stick is uniquely made, hand-carved by renowned Squamish artist Jim Yelton. It features two carved figures on the top half; raven and human, with a thinner shaft featuring a lighter-coloured feather engraving on the front. Carved wooden Talking Sticks are used by many Northwest Coast First Nations' cultures during important gatherings and/or meetings.
Raven is one of the most important symbols.He represents creativity and knowledge; the trickster. He helps our "Creator" (represented by the human) bring the light to all, therefore, Raven symbolizes creation.
Jim Yelton was born in Squamish, BC in 1955. He was taught to carve by his father, Michael Yelton, who stressed the importance of cultural traditions and their significance within this art form. Jim has been carving cedar for over 30 years. He specializes in masks, feast dishes, canoe paddles and Talking Sticks. Jim’s work is featured in galleries and private collections worldwide. He currently resides in Sechelt, British Columbia.
