Hand Carved Native American Canoe By Gary Rice

Vintage Hand Carved Native American Canoe By Gary Rice, this is a wonderful piece hand carved by Gary Rice, he is known for his collection of Northwestern Native American carvings of Totem poles, mask and much more. This piece has 2 removable carved Native Americans and 2 paddles. The canoe is approx. 24″ long, as you can see it is signed on the bottom side. Please see photos for all the details. This is the first and only canoe I have seen done by Gary Rice.

Gary Rice was born June 30, 1939 in a fishing village in Rivers Inlet on the central coast of British Columbia. Mr. Rice is a member of the Coast Salish Nation. He was raised as a commercial fisherman and logger. After injuries forced him to give up manual labor in the mid 1970’s he began to seriously investigate the traditional arts of his native heritage and wood carving has been his occupation ever since. He finds satisfaction in carrying on the traditions of his ancestors and is a patient and dedicated carver. Gary is adept at various forms including screens, masks, bowls, paddles, and totem poles.
