            • 20th C. Nootka Wood "Killer Whale Mask" - Art Thompson
              Aug. 11, 2023

              20th C. Nootka Wood "Killer Whale Mask" - Art Thompson

              Est: $1,500 - $2,000

              First time at auction... Art Thompson (First Nations / Canadian, Nuu-chah-nulth / Nootka, 1948-2003). Killer Whale Mask. Painted wood mask with horsehair and abalone shell, n.d. Signed with culture on verso. A splendid and quite sizable red cedar wood mask, hand-carved by Nootkan artist Art Thompson of the Ditidaht Band, depicting a killer whale with abalone shell inlays and a horse hair coiffure. The evocative visage displays magnificent features with huge, heavy-lidded eyes, a broad nose with flared nostril, and fleshy lips, parted to display 2 rows of tab-shaped teeth. A towering dorsal fin protrudes from the top of the mask, emerging from a heavy mane of horsehair and ending in a large suspension hose and additional tufts of horsehair at the finial. A mesmerizing nacre shell inlay lies at the center of the forehead, and 2 additional inlays adorn the eyes of the whale heads on either side of the dorsal fin. Size: 9.5" W x 33.8" H (24.1 cm x 85.9 cm) In the Nuu-chah-nulth (Nootka) culture, the killer whale is closely related to the wolf. These marine mammals hunt in packs with the same hunting skills used by wolves. It is a Nuu-chah-nulth (Nootka) belief that the killer whale has the ability to assume, once on land, the form of a wolf. According to the Seattle Art Museum: "Art Thompson belongs to the Ditidaht Band of the Nuu-Chah-Nulth (Nootkan) people. Born in 1948 in the village of Whyac, he maintains a dedicated involvement in the cultural life of his community. He also traces matrilineal heritage to the Salish. His dedication came after spending his early years in health institutions for tuberculosis, residential schools, logging, drugs and wandering before returning home in his late 20's. Art became aware of the Westcoast style from Joe David and Ron Hamilton. Art developed his own unique interpretation of the ancient Nuu-Chan-Nulth art in over 1 00 published serigraphs. He started in the late 1960's and was one of the first artist to develop a print style starting with traditional large blocks of color to anchor the design and traditional crest figures, more Northern than Westcoast. By the late 1970's new animal figures were being incorporated into his designs. In the mid-80's his print style included angular Coast Salish elements in with his traditional figures. During this time he worked with Duane Pasco and Steve Brown, both non-native artists working in the native styles. Since then he has worked in his own style continuing with his self-taught experimental approach and becoming more involved in being a Westcoast Indian. After living in Victoria, Art moved to Neah Bay to work and live away from the urban environment. Art represents the development of the Westcoast style of art, which is primarily Nootka, Coast Salish and Makah, as separate from and creatively equal to the Northern style, Haida and Kwakuitl. The Northern style has received most of the recognition traditionally and has been held as the best examples of the Northwest Coast to the detriment of the Westcoast style. Traditional Westcoast style in the pre-contact period focused on animal and human subjects in a rather realistic and naturalistic manner with the emphasis on important features such as heads and faces with suppression of other detail. The emphasis was put on the sculptural details and little decoration was added. In the late 1800's there was a lot of contact with Haida artists and their graphic styles with formlines, emphasis on elaborate details, greater stress on symmetry and less cursive treatment. This hybrid style became the basis for the modern Westcoast style with its use of distinct elements such as the for pointed stars, relative naturalism, tolerance of open spaces, humanoid face shapes, geometric elements (especially as borders) and finally the use of dashes, circles and curlicues. Influenced by the rugged environment of the Northwest Coast, Art graphically portrays the compassion for nature reflected in the legends and history of his people. Art devotes much of his time to educating a wide range of art-enthusiasts on Native culture."
