  • Artist comment: During an internship at the Canadian Museum of History I was given a few precious moments to study our ancestor’s masterpieces. This design is inspired by a Haida lidded basket from the 1800s.
Interested in buying this piece?

Juror comment: A great tribute to lidded Haida baskets of past centuries. The lid here is especially well done and evocative of Haida lids.
