  • Argillite Reproductions

    The Haida carvings in argillite are some of the finest presentations of totemic art. These reproductions are well made from original work in Canada, made in a natural resin composite with the heft and finish of the originals. These museum quality reproductions of the older work are available in a range of styles that can be more casually displayed so that the art can be enjoyed on an everyday basis.

    The reproductions are made by Boma, a Canadian company producing a range of collectibles and giftware.
