Enquire about this Artwork


From Haida Printmaker, Hilary Stewart "The two large incisor teeth and the cross-hatched tail, turned up into the body, identify the creature in this well-balanced design as Beaver. The simple lines and the large size of the head offset the complexity of body and legs in a satisfying way. Inspiration for this print came from a Haida design, printed on leather dance leggings. Robert found the illustration in Franz Boas's Primitive Art, and reworked the motif to conform to a rectangular shape."
