.About Artist: Joe Wilson was born in 1967 into the Cowichan Tribes Native Band and was raised in Duncan, British Columbia, Canada. His interest in art began in elementary school and when he was in grade 12 he made his own silkscreen print editions. Joe first began selling his carvings at age 17 at a local Koksilah Hills store. Since 1984 his work has reflected his search for his own cultural identity in Coast Salish art.
.This design was originally derived from an 8” carved maple spindle whorl, which was collected on Vancouver Island circa early 1900’s. I think the original intention for this piece was two thunderbirds, however I made them into eagles. To me personally, the eagles represent freedom in love and the gifts that it brings. With the ring in the very center of the design it represents eternal love in marriage.
