Argillite, Catlinite, Abalone shell

Revered as a great hunter, the Sea Wolf (Wasgo) was often associated with a special spirit power that man had to acquire to become a successful hunter. Four features that the Sea Wolf can be identified by are an elongated snout with flared nostrils, several large  teeth (which may include canines), prominent ears, and a curled-over tail. Crucially, the mythical Sea Wolf is often indicated by the addition of fins or flippers to traditional wolf imagery. This creature is known to many nations, and is  called Wasgo in Haida legend.
