He was the king of the undersea world, master and protector of the seals who were a symbol of wealth. His name means "wealthy one" and he ruled from a great rich house under the water. The house contained great wealth in blankets, coppers and other treasures. Many humans of legendary history attempted to reach this kingdom. Those who achieved their goal became wealthy and powerful, returning to their home village with magical boxes full of treasure. The Komokwa is the master of the seals. The posts and beams of his house are living sea lions. Sometimes he appears on the surface of the sea, but his head is so big that it looks like an island. He is responsible for the rising and ebbing of the tides, as well as the riches these tides deposit on beaches, and those claimed by the vagaries of sea weather, both material and human lives. One terrific story recounts how he eats human eyes as if they were crab apples. Komokwa has the power to see into the future, heal the sick and injured, and bestow powers on those whom he favours.$8,500.00

The Raven is a large bird, with blue-black or jet-black plumage, often mistaken for a crow, but is much larger. Ravens, American and northwestern crows, and stelar’s jays are four representative of the crow family found throughout the Northwest Coast region. Ravens are infamous for thievery and for mischievously moving objects from one place to another. The white raven is a rare genetic occurrence of which people of the Northwest coast are particularly fond. These white ravens are believed to be good omens and magical. Some people believe that bad luck will befall anyone who harms a white raven. Raven is one of the most important beings in Northwest Coast art and mythology, although the nature of his role varies from one culture to the next, and his predominance diminishes from north to south. Raven is the original organizer, Trickster, Transformer, teacher, catalyst and chief spirit. He is also a relentless schemer and practical joker, lustful, impulsive, cunning, shameless and without remorse. Raven has the power to transform both him self and other beings. He can even change animate to inanimate matter, and vice versa. He is blamed for impregnating women, by becoming a speck of dirt, a seed, a rice grain or a pine needle in the water they drink. Raven has the power of prophecy. Although Raven is supremely creative and productive, he is not the supreme Creator; he is the Creator chief and original agent. The cycle of Raven myths is customarily accessible to all, unlike most stories, which are the property of certain families. In some cultures, Raven stories may be divided into two categories, one that is “sacred” and the other “everyday”. In stories, Raven is intelligent, curious, innovative and resourceful, yet selfish, greedy, deceitful and mischievous. He always follows his appetite, and consequently is often in trouble; in fact, that is when he does some of his best creative work Among many other achievements, Raven determined the order of things in the world as we know it; secured the blessing of Fire, Water, Sun, Moon, Stars, and discovered humankind and all other creatures.$4,200.00

Native people believed that sighting a Heron before a hunt was an indication that the hunt would be a victorious one. As a water creature the Heron is an image of going with the flow, and working with the elements of Mother Nature rather than struggling against her. The Heron was thought to communicate with the Supernatural being. On the West Coast,especially in the Nuu-chah-nulth territories, villages had their watchmen posted near heron nests as the blue heron's are very loud and would be the first indication if raiding parties where making their way to shore. Their calls would allow the watchmen to race back to the village and mobilize the warriors to defend the village or meet those coming to shore. Blue Herons are medium to large sized birds with long legs and necks. The bill is generally long and harpoon like.
