WOLF

Wolf, viewed by some nations as a transformer, is a popular image within crest and shamanic art. It is respected for its strength, agility, intelligence and capacity for devotion.

As a result Wolf’s hunting prowess, particularly successful hunters often claim it, as a spirit helper or guide. Wolf is also a prominent image within warrior societies, due to its fierceness, and is a central figure within ceremonial activities.

Wolf is easily recognizable by a long snout, prominent canine teeth and tall ears. A tongue may also be depicted, often curling upwards. Wolf imagery may also include Killer Whale motifs, hinting at the connection between these two animals.

SAMMY DAWSON
Place of Birth: Alert Bay, British Columbia
Birth Date: 1976
Affiliation: Kwakwaka'wakw

At the age of 12, after spending his early years in Alert bay watching his grandfather Chief William Robertson and other local carvers create masks along with other traditional regalia, Sammy began his carving career. He later apprenticed under dsitinguished Northwest Coast artists Simon Dick and Eddie McDougal.

Sammy creates masks, drums as well as larger totems and other ceremonial pieces. His works have become extremely collectable and his creations are represented in many of the top native art galleries.
