Plexi-glass display stand not included
The concept for this design is based upon the physical depiction of air meeting water – a droplet 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 left side of the design, and a Killerwhale; it’s body elusively curving around the right side. Corrine has continued to play with the whirlpool concept by introducing echoing shapes and forms that reflect across the surface of the material and invite the viewer to explore the “water’s” surface.

Watchmen grace the top of totem poles, often in groups of two to three. They wear conical hats topped with skils, which are indicative of the number of Potlatches they have hosted. These rings are prestigious, as they declare the status and wealth held by the hat’s owner.
