  • Wolf
    The wolf features strongly in both Indian and Inuit lore as a successful hunter. Once the object of fear among the white settlers and shot by bounty hunters, the wolf is becoming better understood and more appreciated, both in Canada and Alaska, and is depicted in art throughout the north. In Indian designs, the wolf is identified by an elongated snout with flaring nostrils, large teeth and ears, and a curled tail.
  • Barry Herem

    Barry Herem is a Seattle artist who has worked in the Northwest Coast Indian style for many years. He has written about the subject as a reviewer, and as an unofficial ethnographer and archaeologist who has done field work collecting and publishing data about the precontact Tlingit and Haida of Southeast Alaska.

    Barry's work is symbolic, animistic, and organic, and has been shown in nearly every major American city and many foreign ones. Barry's taut and harmonious work owes much to the essential forms of Northwest Coast native art, which he has renewed and extended in what he calls "equal parts of invention and assimilation."

    He has created artworks in wood, steel, bronze, fabric, aluminum plate, glass and serigraphic print form. He has created several large sculptures, including two 30-foot aluminum plate whale sculptures for the Portland, Oregon International Airport and a large acrylic sculpture for the Seattle-Tacoma (Sea-Tac) airport. He has created more than 40 limited-edition serigraphs, plus 5" x 7" art cards based on them.
