|Dimensions||18.5 x 17 x 4.25"|
|Artist||Tim Paul RCA|
Tim Paul was born in 1950 in the isolated village of Esperanza Inlet, north of Tofino on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. He began carving in 1975 under the direction of Ben Andrews and later with John Livingston at the Arts of the Raven studio in Victoria, BC. He accepted the position of Assistant Carver to Richard Hunt at the Thunderbird Park at the Royal British Columbia Museum in 1977 and seven years later he became the first carver from outside of the Hunt family to hold the position of senior carver. He held this position until 1992 when he left to oversee a native education program for Vancouver Island.
During his time with the museum he accepted and initiated many prestigious totem pole commissions including the Great Hall of the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Hull, Quebec and in Auckland, New Zealand as a presentation to commemorate the 1990 Commonwealth Games. In addition to these successes, Tim Paul also worked as the Chief Carver on projects for Stanley Park, Vancouver, BC, and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in England.
Tim has been asked to make ceremonial pieces and cultural commissions through out his career. He has also honoured traditional guidelines for making pieces that would represent the Nuu-chah-nulth people around the world.

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.
