Inquire about this piece

"Haida art embodies a way of life, and a way of knowing, unique to our people. Together with the Haida language, it tells our histories, conveys family lineages and privileges, indicates a social standing and reminds us of our relationship with others. It plays an important economic function, is central to ceremony and can be highly political. Art expresses and strengthens our connection to the supernatural and the spiritual. It affirms and honours our inseparable relationship to, and dependency upon, the lands and water of Haida Gwaii. It reminds of our place in this world.

Haida art is also beautiful. This beauty has been attained through artists of the past and present who have become knowledge holders and story tellers, learning the societal structure, histories and protocols of our nation. They know the lands and the waters from which their materials come. They know how art functions in Haida society. They are dedicated to studying the masterpieces of the past and to learn from the masters of today. These artists want to know what makes great art, and they want to make great art"
