Birch wood, Acrylic paint
|Dimensions||13 x 8.25 x 4"|
Born November 6, 1970, in Mayo, Yukon, of Northern Tutchone and Tlingit ancestry, Eugene belongs to the Crow Clan of Selkirk First Nation, located in Pelly Crossing, Yukon.
Eugene Alfred’s artworks often reference both sides of his heritage, in the form of Tlingit-style masks, bowls, rattles, and panels that are painted with traditional motifs and sculptures depicting Northern Tutchone stories. He works in all kinds of wood, including local birch, alder, yellow and red cedar, pine, and spruce.
Studying under such renowned artists as Dempsey Bob (Tlingit/Tahltan) and Ken Mowatt (Gitxsan), Eugene has established himself as a respected carver. His unique style and expertise have provided him with the opportunity to not only produce exquisite collectible artwork but also to become an instructor and pass on his artistry to the younger generations. Currently, Eugene works and resides in Pelly Crossing, Yukon.

Norman Tait with Lucinda Turner
Alder wood, Copper, Cedar rope, Horse hair, Operculum shells, Acrylic paint, Leather
Norman Tait’s exceptional Sun Hawk Mask stems from his father’s clan, the Tlingit Nation ancestry, and primarily represents one of his father’s family crest figures. While this exquisite mask depicts elements of a human face, the additional features, such as the beak, allude to its supernatural connection. Constructed from Alder wood, the wood’s unique grain is a strong element within the design and is used to exemplify the mask’s delicate human-like structure. Furthermore, the addition of acrylic paint and the stark horsehair locks add life to this Humanized Supernatural-being.
