.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, which I feel is the best one made of this particular ritual, was based on an old Cowichan Spindle Whorl.As I tried to envision the original Cowichan artist’s concept, I remembered learning that Shamans used highly valued stuffed sea otters in ceremonial cleansing and healing rituals. I am a firm believer and feel this piece can be used as a healing instrument of FAITH.
