  • Gonagadet “Lazy Son-in-Law” Sculpture

    Andrew Williams

    $4,800.00 CAD

    Argillite, Abalone shell

    The Lazy Son-in-Law is a story of a young son-in-law who is chastised by his mother-in law for sleeping in late, not taking care of his tools, not bringing in enough firewood and above all not catching enough fish or trapping enough game.

    Growing tired of her nagging, the young son-in-law announced he was going inland for several days. Taking his best stone adze and several other tools, he ventured to a nearby lake. Here, he cut down the tallest of Red Cedar trees and constructed a large trap and waited on guard, ready for the infamous Wasgo to appear. Shortly the water began to churn and the four-legged, finned Wasgo appeared snapping at the enticing bait. The young crafty hunter released the remaining cedar trap to ensnare and break the Seabear’s back.

    After dragging the mighty Seabear ashore, he skinned it, and burned its carcass in a great fire. The next night, adorned in the Seabear’s skin, he swam in the lake and finally out to sea. The following evenings he began to catch large prey, salmon, seals and sea-lions; not just one but many and placing them all as gifts on the old mother-in-law steps, and in the morning he would return home in human form, silent to his adventures. Unaware of her son-in-laws newfound gift, the old woman began to sing her own praise; claiming how lucky they all were for her being in touch with the masters of the sea.

    Soon, her pride knowing no boundaries she decided to hold a feast in honor of herself. The morning of the feast no gifts from the sea were to be found, but she did not fret as another good sign had occurred – her lazy son-in-law was nowhere to be seen. Guests arrived and celebrations were underway when Wasgo came forth from the sea bearing sea gifts. The daughter ran up to Wasgo with guests and mother behind. Although, no words were exchanged, everyone could see the eyes of the Wasgo belonged to that of the son-in-law.

    From that day forth, no one ever bought fish to the hunter’s mother-in-law again for she fainted and died on the spot, but the daughter received sea gifts every morning, summer and winter, for the remainder of her life.

  • My Final Exam Box (Raven)

    David Neel

    RESERVED

    Sterling Silver, Oxidized, 23K Yellow Gold
    Engraved

    David Neel’s My Final Exam (Raven) Box is a sterling silver and gold miniature replication of a traditional bentwood box. The original box, carved by an enigmatic and mysterious artist known only as the “Master of the Black Field”, can be found in the collection of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The “Master of the Black Field” was of probable Tlingit descent and lived and worked during the 1800’s. The original box, which depicts a Seal, was collected by US Naval Lieutenant George Thornton Emmons, an ethnographic photographer who recorded information and artifacts from the Tlingit and Tahltan Nations in the 1880s.

    All of the greats in Northwest Coast art, including the likes of Bill Reid and Robert Davidson, have studied the Master’s work. Bill Holm, the infamous Northwest Coast art historian and author of Northwest Coast Indian Art: An Analysis of Form, has called the nineteenth-century original a “masterpiece.” Acclaimed Haida artist Bill Reid referred to his effort to learn from the box as “the final exam” in understanding the visual language of Northwest Coast northern design; thus informing Neel’s title of his own piece.

    My Final Exam (Raven) Box is a highly detailed exploration of the finer uses of form line design. Neel’s study of the revered design by the Master can be seen when comparing the two pieces. Each panel of the original box is replicated in Neel’s own style. David has also inlaid the box with gold accents and oxidized the silver, adding further emphasis to its finite and intricate detailing. The lid is removable and seals perfectly on all four sides of the box.

    While many of his pieces are more contemporary in their material and design, Neel learned carving in the traditional style by his family and peers in his father’s village. At the age of 27, he apprenticed with legendary artist Beau Dick. He attended art school studying photojournalism, and brings this wider awareness of contemporary art practice to his pieces.

    Northwest Coast design is infinitely complex, with endless possibilities, and I continue to try to further my understanding of this endlessly intricate art form.”  ~ David Neel
