Drew and Wilson outline the history of the Haida in relation to argillite carving.
In a key chapter, “A World Apart”, the reader is led through a tangle of Haida beliefs and legends seen through the artist’s mind as he sought to express the world around him.
The technical aspects of argillite – its nature, how it was quarried, the relationship of the carver to his material, clues to a carver’s identity through his carving style, the transformation of argillite art with the coming of the [Europeans], and its resurgence alongside contemporary art are detailed.
Argillite is study that will appeal to collectors, students of [First Nations] art and culture, and anyone interested in recapturing the formidable and legendary consciousness of this ancient people.
This indispensable and beautifully illustrated book is the first to introduce everyone, from the casual observer to the serious collector of Northwest Coast prints, to the forms, cultural background and structures of this highly imaginative art.
