The Spindle Whorl just looks like an ancient glory hole.
I always kinda wondered why Haida art was pretty much the only native style we saw around here.
i was in Taholah yesterday and i didn't see too much art. they could use more art & less clearcuts.
So I am wondering if some of the collection comes from the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver, BC. I used to work as a tour guide there and I know that the museum is closed until Spring but I wasn't able to find any information about them loaning out their items. I do know that they have one of the largest collections of Coast Salish art- new and old- in on display and in their visible storage.
There is a sweet companion book for the exhibition too. Should be available soon, buy one!
@4: Yes, some of what's in the show is on loan from the BC museum. There's stuff from all over (BC, East Coast, England).
@1 - Totally reminded me of a Sheela na-Gig.
