Haida Totem features the work of renowned Haida Indigenous artist Clarence Mills which has been reproduced with his permission onto locally milled sustainable wood.  This design depicts Beaver or  Xuuya, Haida Raven or XuuyaHaida Moon or Kuu.ngaay kiixadxa and Haida Eagle or Guudaay.
Each wood canvas will vary with its style of grain, colour and markings. We like to think of it as having its own personality. Due to this, your print may look slightly different than the picture shown.
Each wood canvas is surprisingly easy to hang. A routed groove runs the entire width of the print and simply secures with the use of a wall hook or nail.

Description

At the age of 18, Clarence Mills was influenced by his uncle, Doug Wilson, an established Haida artist and author, to pursue his own calling of becoming an artist. Since then Clarence has become a World renowned artist creating artwork in the cultural tradition and style of his people.
Totem poles are, traditionally, monumental carvings made up of symbols or figures carved from large trees that often serve as a functional architectural feature, welcome signs for village visitors, mortuary vessels for the remains of deceased ancestors.
They may embody a historical narrative of significance to the people carving and installing the pole. Given the complexity and symbolic meanings of totem pole carvings, their placement and importance lies in the observer’s knowledge and connection to the meanings of the figures and the culture in which they are embedded.
Made in Canada using locally milled sustainable wood.
