Pictures of Native American Orca Killer Whale
Statue by Northwest Indian Artist Bill Reid

In 1984, Northwest Indian artist Bill Reid's wonderful bronze statue of a Native American orca killer whale called the 'Chief of the Undersea World' was erected in front of the Vancouver Aquarium. The orca or killer whale is one of the key figures in Haida and other Northwest Native American mythology.

'Chief of the Undersea World' by Northwest Indian Artist Bill Reid

As one can see from comparing the size of the people in the shots above, the statue is quite large in size. However, Reid's 'Spirit of the Haida Gwaii', also on display at the Museum of Civilization, is still his largest and most complex piece.

Today, Northwest Indian artists make some very stunning carvings of killer whales. Just imagine having such a beautiful piece of artwork hanging in your home. See some great examples of Native American orca killer whale carvings at very affordable online prices available at Free Spirit Gallery.
