    “This contemporary Coast Salish painting depicts the moon with two stars. The white stripe at the center of the design alludes to Barnett Newman’s “zip,” and borrowing influences from modern art. Barnett Newman had an admiration of Northwest Coast art. As a contemporary Northwest Coast artist, I have an admiration of the work of Modern artists such as Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, and Keith Haring. Since many modern artists were influenced by indigenous art forms, and since contemporary Canadian culture partially developed on Salish sOIL, since contemporary Coast Salish people live in the most densely and diversely populated and most urbanized area of the Northwest Coast, this contemporary cultural reality should be reflected in our work.”

    Hei-Matau represents prosperity, abundance and fertility.  The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life.  They are worn to protect travelers over water, and are also symbols of power and authority which are held in great reverence by the Maori people.  They were used practically as a tool for fishing and often decorated as a sign of respect for sea creatures.

  • Eagle and Killerwhale Totem

    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.

  • Koru Pendant

    Maori Artist

    $70.00 CAD

    Bone

    The Koru's closed outer circle represents the circle of life which has no beginning or end, is seamless and of which we are all a part. It also tells of the stars and plants which are part of the circle of life and contain knowledge of our origins. For the artist, it represents the relationship or oneness between himself and his craft, bringing together head, hand and heart.

    The spiral of a Koru, which is the fern frond as it opens, brings new life and purity to the world. It also represents peace, tranquility and spirituality along with a strong sense of re-growth or new beginnings. The Koru is often associated with nurturing so is frequently used to represent strength and purity of a loving relationship within a family.

    The intertwining of these elements represent oneness within the natural world where spirituality, strength, beauty, old and new life all blend into one unifying force.

    “This series was designed as a portrayal of the universal elements in symbolic form, translated into Coast Salish design particular to the Coast Salish territory. Each piece was created specifically to represent the most common example of the element in Coast Salish lands.

    Fire is depicted as the Sun, which shines on the land. Wate is depicted as the west coast icon, the Killerwhale. Air is depicted as the legendary creature, Thunderbird. Land is depicted in the pairing of the Eagle and the Salmon.

    For the water element the most common and well-known creature of the sea in this territory is the witty Killerwhale, shown here with a smile and a blowhole, which sings the songs of the Killerwhale. The Killerwhale is much esteemed for its song and just the sight of it brings excitement and enthusiasm.” -Joe Wilson
