Northwest Coast Haida Artist Gold And Black Carved Totem Plaque For Sale
This unusual plaque was created by, and signed Clarence A. Wells. Mr Wells is a well known Haida/Tsimpshien artist, famous for his paintings, and craft work, executed in the tradition style. This piece is a 8 1/4"X 11" black frame, hollow in the center, but backed by thin piece of black plywood, making a 4 1/4"X 7" depression. Into this depression, and adding to the dimensionality, is the carving, painted in gold. A totem of a winged bird(Thunderbird?) stands to the left. Another similar bird, in the top right quadrant, facing down, is attacking a fish/whale, on its back, and in trouble. We don't know what this means, but it makes a very dramatic wall hanging. The signature facsimile, in gold ink, at the lower right, is Clarence A. Wells.
