Handcarved from red cedar, with natural Elk antlers and fur, this transformation mask is one of Michael's finest creations. The Elk is symbolic of freedom, power, nobility, pace and a balance of energy. To Kwakiutl natives, elk represents a most cherished food source, and is also respected for it's stamina, strength and agility. At a critical point during a potlatch ceremony, a dancer using this mask would pull the strings, transforming from Elk to the man within.
