BEAR FRONTLET BY SAMMY DAWSON 18SD57

  This frontlet was created by British Columbia First Nations Kwakwaka'wakw artist Sammy Dawson from traditional red cedar. The cedar bark band was made by Tabitha Schooner, a Nuxalk weaver. A frontlet is a small mask worn on the forehead, typically by a high ranking individual, which displays the crest of the family. Colour has been added to accentuate the features of the bear and the artist has knife finished the piece, giving it a lovely texture.
