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.
