Bear Mother Moon Mask by Ed NoiseCat, Shuswap and Lil’wat Nations,
In Bear Mother Moon Mask, Ed pays homage to the strong women in his life. Continually inspired by their strength and resilience to be good mentors and provide a guidance and wisdom to rear their children, Ed recognizes how fortunate he has been to have these fierce woman warriors by his side.
In Lil’wat Culture, the bear symbolizes family and strength through motherhood teachings. Mother Bears are fierce defenders of their children and are great protectors.
This mask was worn in an Angela DeMontigny Fashion Show. Internationally-acclaimed, Indigenous Canadian designer, Angela DeMontigny is known for custom made and ready-to-wear, all leather clothing collections, bold accessories and statement jewelry collections that have been sold in specialty boutiques and galleries throughout North America and Europe since 1995.
