Abstract (English)

Bringhurst investigates the rich history and artistic traditions of the Northwest Coast Peoples from precontact through colonialization, examines Haida artist Reid's re-connection with this heritage and provides a detailed reading of the Peoples' symbolism, mythology and visual language as manifested in the black bronze sculpture commisioned for the Canadian Chancery in Washington, D.C. Photographs by Steltzer document the project's five-year development. 42 bibl. ref.
