Here are two examples of Pacific NW style paddles. The shapes are somewhat standard, but they are decorated with the First Nations symbols of ovoids, split Us, etc. The first is made of Alaskan Nootka Cedar. The second is Port Orford Cedar. The shapes are incised into the wood before painting and sometimes trimmed with carving after.

Yes, they have only been wall decorations. We have carbon fiber, double ended paddles for kayaking.
