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.

Gagiid is a wild, otherworldly creature who has been transformed through a traumatic maritime experience. Some believe that he can be found lurking on the forest edge and near streams, collecting the souls of the drowned and trying to persuade unwitting humans to eat his ghostly food, causing them to become otherworldly like him. However, it is not all doom and gloom – as with any transformation, it is possible for Gagiid to be tamed and re-enter the human world again.
