This wall plaque is 10ft x 7ft x 2.5inches, first growth red cedar. It's oiled with boiled linseed oil. All the figures here are from my culture. If you came to my village, at Fort Rupert, B.C to a potlatch you would see these figures danced. Two figures, the beaver and the otter are here because of the Harbour Air restaurants, the Flying Beaver and the Flying Otter, but they would be danced in the Dance of the Animal Kingdom along with the bear. There's an eagle in the middle standing on a copper with its wings out -stretched, the eagle in the main crest of my people from Fort Rupert. On each side of the Eagles' face are two eagles with their heads looking up. The top left corner is a moon rising. Below the Eagles' wing on the left is an eagle holding a salmon. The salmon is a staple food with our people. On the right, under the wing, is a thunderbird with a killer whale. Killer whale is the favourite food of the thunderbird. There's a moon in the blowhole of the whale and a hawk man on the whale's tail and a raven on the side fin.
I call this work, "My Family" and it is proudly displayed in the new Harbour Air Seaplanes Terminal, Victoria, B.C., May, 2016
