Killer Whale Spirit Box (rosewood)


Sculptured Spirit Box, artist Thomas McPhee, KILLER WHALE colour: Rosewood or Verdigris. Canadian Made. 6" x 10" x4". 

Sculpted by West Coast artist Thomas McPhee, these beautiful boxes are made from crushed marble and undergo multiple polishing and highlighting steps to develop the uniquely rich and warm finish. The Killer Whale is the lord of the oceans, a symbol of long life. It is believed that great chiefs turn into killer whales when they pass on into the nether world. This illustrates the close link between man and Whale.
