KOMOKWA MASK by Ozzie Matilpi, Kwakiutl -- Late 20th century -- Kwakiutl
Kumugwe’ is “Chief of the Undersea World and is the most powerful force in the sea. His name means “Wealthy One,” and he rules over all the beings in his realm: fish, sea mammals, etc. The Killer Whale serves as his attendant and messenger.
The Kumugwe’s house on the sea floor is made of copper, with live sea lions forming the house posts and rafters. Great treasure is contained within this house, and anyone lucky enough to gain his benevolence will acquire wealth and prestige.
Copper is an element that is always associated with Kumugwe’, who is sometimes referred to as “Copper Maker.”

Haven’t been active lately due to a trip that I took to Seattle to separate myself and get a fresh breath of air. Traveling is amazing and one of my goals for these next two years is to be able to put myself in a situation where I’m able to travel and enjoy the world, it’s incredible to see the different types of people and communities. Travel while you can and when you can! And go patriots!

Just like Pilates, hugging can boost oxytocin and serotonin levels, boost self-esteem and improve mental health. Hugging has also been shown to improve cardiac health, lower blood pressure and increase relaxation levels in both participants! If you don't see your Pilates bestie or favorite instructor today, tag them below to send them a virtual hug! #hugs #pilates #clubpilates #moodbooster #wellness
