Orca Killer Whale Art

For those who love orcas or killer whales, you might want to take a look at the Pacific Northwest Coast Indian art representation of them. The orca or killer whale has been part of Northwest Coast Indian culture and legends for a long time which is why this creature is a favorite subject of these people's art.

For some background information on the significance of the orca or killer whale as well as a brief description of one of the legends surrounding it, see the Orca Killerwhale in Pacific Northwest Coast Indian art.

Free Spirit Gallery has a separate section in its online gallery just for killer whale carvings.

Below is a nice Northwest Indian art carving of a killer whale by master carver Cody Mathias.
