“This piece is a representation of the Moon which is [an] ancestral part of our mythology. Moon is said to have been the great leader who changed great things in his time among our people. Being half human and half sky being, he was part of the people. This depiction in particular, shows the Salmon numbered in five, which also denotes the number used in defining Puyallup stories as these are shared through the Puget Sound.” – Shaun Peterson
The artist has mixed conventional Northwest Coast materials with modern media to create this moon panel, Keeper of the Tide.
The central figure represents the face of the moon. In Northwest Coast culture, the Moon is regarded as a symbol of protection and guardianship. The Moon is often associated with transformation.
Using sandblasted glass, Shaun has incorporated swimming salmon circling the Moon’s face. Salmon are honoured and celebrated by all coastal peoples: the fish serves as a powerful symbol of regeneration, self-sacrifice, and perseverance. Shortages of salmon are traditioally attributed to human disrespect and refusal to listen to and live by the wisdom of elders.

The drum is considered one of the main percussive instruments, along with the rattle, which was used in traditional Northwest Coast ceremonies and cultural events. Its beat provides the basis from which dances, songs and oral histories are performed during a Potlatch.
The Thunderbird is a supernatural, mythical creature that lives high in the mountains and feeds on Killerwhale. It’s been aptly named for the thunder that rolls off its wings and lightening comes from its eyes when it flies.
Sterling Silver, Argillite, Abalone shell, Engraved
Although Derek White’s Beaver and Bear Box is constructed from the contemporary material of Sterling Silver combined with Argillite, this box retains its traditional values through conception and imagery. Derek exhibits his mastery in his precision of line and perfect symmetry of the formline on this treasure. The gently angled lid with Abalone inlay as well as the engraved and incised elements on the box is suggestive of the prototypic bent cornered wooden boxes and chests.
