Behind the facade of the six houses in the Grand Hall are exhibit spaces featuring artifacts and art, both of the historical period and the current day focusing on the Pacific Coast tribes. An entrance close to the spot where I left off yesterday brings us to see this first. Hamatsa Design Dance Screen is by Richard Hunt, and dates to 1989.
I didn't photograph the tag for this, but it looks older.
Man Changing Into A Wolf is a print by Art Thompson, dating to 1974.
Here we get more into the artifacts side of things, with masks.
Video displays throughout these spaces are found, with First Nations peoples speaking about specific items or cultural aspects.
Haida artist David Robertson is behind this 1984 print, Every Year The Salmon Come Back.
More of the artifacts in this area. We'll continue here tomorrow.

Interesting to visit this museum !ReplyDelete
Very nice, the painting 'Every Year The Salmon Come Back' is my favourite.ReplyDelete
Ahí se ve la antigüedad, de esas máscaras, que han llegado hasta nuestros días. en España, se celebran las fiestas de Carnaval y en la ciudad de Cádiz es donde mama tiene. En determinado pueblos de Andalucía se difraczan y el rostro va cubierto con careta, van recorriendo las calles y se paran ante los conocidos, para ver si aciertan. quien se oculta, detrás de la máscara.ReplyDelete
Beautiful art, both the artifacts and the prints are cool!ReplyDelete
Take care, enjoy your day!

There is so much to see in this Museum -- I imagine you would need hours and hours to really see it. The totem exhibit (the post just before this one, I think) would keep me occupied for a long time, I have always been fascinated with those. ... I really like the way they have included the First Nations people talking about what all of the these artifacts mean to them.ReplyDelete
I think I spent five hours during this visit.Delete
Thanks for sharing these WilliamReplyDelete
