Wood Salmon and Eagle Panel by Northwest Coast Native Artist Kyran Yeomans

“Save the Last Dance For Me” Panel

Availability: Out of stock

Red Cedar wood, Acrylic paint

“This stop on our tour (where you are standing currently in the gallery reading this, or through the digital ethers), we see that the elements and nutrients of a shredded, disposed-of salmon carcass disperse back into the waterways to continue nourishing yet smaller creatures, even after death. Further downstream, the vitalized water then finds its way – via streams and rivers themselves, or through the water cycle – to provide nutrients and support to the essential [cedar trees] used for so much. In turn, the cedar wood panel allows the carved salmon to emerge, creating a cyclical relationship within the piece, both physically as well as metaphorically. This piece may serve as a monument – a totem, if you will – to the salmon. Bounteous and tasty.
For this piece, one possible interpretation has the salmon’s depiction here in a reversal of the typical ‘circling-bird-of-prey-up-overhead’ scenario. Salmon, playfully leading its chosen partner, Eagle, in dance through the fluidity of each step in the life cycle. A partnership.” – Kyran Yeomans
