    Garner Moody

    $20,500.00 CAD

    Red cedar wood

    When Garner Moody moved to Vancouver in 1987, he spent two years working with renowned Haida artist Bill Reid. Soon after, he moved back to Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) to draw inspiration from their traditional way of life.

    Throughout his years of carving, Garner continues to preserve the northern Haida form line exemplified in this linage pole. His composition and balance furthers the notion that Garner demonstrates expertise in design, detail and form line.

    Garner depicts crest figures signifying important family crests, such as the Eagle, Killerwhale and Thunderbird.

    As one of the most prominent beings in art and mythology, the Eagle is known for its grace, power and prestige. Considered a majestic noble creature, the Eagle spirit is associated with freedom and lofty pursuits. Traditionally, Shamans believed that Eagle feathers were spiritually endowed and possessed healing powers. They used them in various ceremonial and ritual contexts; today these feathers are still strewn to welcome honored guests to peaceful and friendly gatherings.

    The Eagle is respected for its intelligence as well as its vision, both figurative and literal, thereby claiming both honor and high stature. Although revered as a powerful hunter, the Eagle’s feathers are considered sacred.

    The Eagle is one of two main family crests of the Haida nation and is known to mate with the same partner for its lifetime.

    The Killerwhale is an important crest symbol associated with power, strength, dignity and communication.

    Killerwhale Clans are thought to live in Killerwhale Villages deep within the ocean; when at home they remove their skins and live as large humans. Mating once for life and thought to be the reincarnation of great chiefs, these majestic animals are the protectors of mankind. While known to capsize canoes and carry the inhabitants to their Killerwhale Village, they are also reputed to act as guides to humans caught within storms.

    This stoic pole typifies Garner Moody’s commitment and dedication to the preservation of Haida mythology and heritage. His experience culminates in this work and, as the totem represents the messenger of cultural identity, this is a prime example of function and form working in perfect harmony.

  • Where Air Meets Water: The Eagle and the Orca

    Corrine Hunt

    $18,000.00 CAD

    Bone ash, graphite and aluminum composite

    In this panel design Corrine Hunt has propelled her use of the medium in such a way that she invites a ‘contemporary’ perception of form. The panel is made from a composite of bone ash, graphite, and aluminum; the organic black colour coming from the ash. The panel itself has been cut from a technically controlled machine, and then has been hand-finished and polished to a luminous sheen.

    Corrine's concept for the panel is based upon the physical depiction of air meeting water; a drop of water which creates a swirl as the air affects its surface. The whorl-shape created by this abstract notion has produced the forms of an Eagle, on the upper left side of the panel, and an Orca; it’s body elusively curving around the right side of the panel. Corrine has continued to play with the whirlpool concept by introducing echoing shapes and forms that reflect across the surface of the panel and invite the viewer to explore the “water’s” surface.

    In First Nations art and culture, the Eagle is seen as the symbol of status, power, peace, and friendship, whilst the Killerwhale is revered for its powerful hunting ability and is considered to be the sea manifestation of the Wolf. Both in legend and in the wild, the Killerwhale guards its family for a lifetime. Again, the artist is working around the model of “Air meeting Water”, both visually and in her choice of crest figures.

    The artist's intention in her design is to mesmerize the viewer; she combines traditional formlines of the Northwest Coast with the interpretive concepts of post modernism, allowing the eye to move seamlessly and always see something new.

    Volcano Woman is perhaps one of the oldest and most revered legends which tells of a mortal”s fate if he/she does not treat sacred objects or creatures with respect. In defense of her beloved wild creatures, she controls the powerful volcanoes. Stories tell of how the killing of a frog leads the Volcano woman to destroy an entire village.

    Volcano Woman is a supernatural, powerful person in First Nations mythology. She had a son who, like his mother, had supernatural abilities. He often liked to change from his Human form to that of a Frog (Wukus).

    Years ago, a Prince and his two friends went fishing. Hungry, they lay their food on leaves. The Wukus (Frog), being mischievous, jumped on their food. Twice the young Prince threw the Frog into the shrubs but on the third time they threw the frog into the fire and killed the innocent creature.

    A few nights later, a woman could be heard crying and wailing. “Who has done this, come forward and I will spare your village.” This warning went unheeded for some time until finally a Woman of the Elders went to the village outskirts to see her. Volcano Woman instructed the Woman of the Elders to send forth the three young men and she would spare the village from volcanic destruction. The Woman of the Elders begging for the sake of the Village told of Volcano Woman”s ultimatum – but this warning went unheeded.

    On the final night of the village’s existence, Volcano Woman was heard saying, “I asked for those responsible to take heed and now you will know my vengeance.” The Village shook, a Volcano erupted, destroying the village and all who lived there.
