Nootka Eagle Native Mask Red Cedar Northwest Coast:

This is a classic Nuu-chah-nulth red cedar Northwest Coast Native American mask. It is an Eagle Transformation mask. It cleverly depicts a full eagle figure within the human face: the tailfeather can be seen on the forehead, the head can be seen on either cheek, the talons can be seen gripping the mouth, and the bird's wings elegantly cross the figure's eyes. The shape of this mask is quintessentially Nuu-chah-nulth, but Pat's sophisticated design sense brings this piece into the 21st century. This is also a large mask when considering standard Northwest Native masks. It measures 17" x 9" x 8" and is adorned with cedar bark.The Eagle is a symbol of pride and friendship.Pat Amos is a member of the Mowachaht Band, one of the fourteen member tribes of the Nuu-chah-nulth Nation. Patrick is active in his community, giving carving demonstrations at various schools throughout the Port Alberni, B.C. school district each year. Since 1991, Patrick has taught a native art class at the Duquaht Art School in Uclulet, B.C. He has been active as an artist for more than thirty years, as he began designing limited edition prints in 1976. In 1979, he began carving wood, apprenticing with Tony Hunt Sr. at the Art of the Raven Gallery, in Victoria. Pat later apprenticed with Tim Paul at the Royal British Columbia Museum carving shed in Victoria, where he assisted in totem pole projects. Pat began selling his work through the Royal British Columbia Museum shop in Victoria as early as 1976. He had his first solo exhibition in 1991 at the Gallery Indigena in Stratford, Ontario. In 1992, Patrick was invited to show his work at an exhibit at the Native Heritage Centre in Duncan, B.C. Several of Patrick’s paintings and prints are housed in the permanent collection of the Royal British Columbia Museum. Pat is increasingly being commissioned for larger works and he now takes on apprentices to assist with these projects. His commissions include a 10 x 30-foot mural for the Mount Klitsa Junior Secondary School, in Port Alberni (1995), a 14-foot totem pole for the Alberni District Secondary School in Port Alberni (1997), an 8 x 20-foot painted mural for the HA-HO Payuk Elementary School on the Tsahahe reserve in Port Alberni, and a 7-foot totem pole for the Gallery Indigena in Stratford, Ontario. In 1990, Patrick Amos and Tim Paul carved a 36-foot Hesquiaht totem pole for the Maori people of New Zealand. "native mask", "haida mask", "northwest native"
