Paddle depicting Thunderbird, 2017, Laurence Scow, Kwakwaka'wakw Nation, carved red cedar, pigment, 60"long x 6.25" wide x 1" deep
Laurence Scow was born in 1958 into the Kwakiutl Nation located at Fort Rupert by Port Hardy, British Columbia.
Although he was born into a long line of carvers, Laurence did not start carving until later in life. He began carving in 1985, inspired by the work of Bill Wilson and Larry Hunt.
His attention to detail and elegant lines makes each piece a complete work of art.
