No Big Deal

Kayak (Canada) - - FEATURE STORY -

For most of Canada’s past, art has sim­ply been a part of reg­u­lar life. Su­sanna Moodie found time in the busy life of an early On­tario set­tler to cap­ture the beauty around her, like these wild roses. The owl mask on the right was cre­ated by Gil­bert Daw­son, a Kwag­iulth carver from Van­cou­ver Is­land. Masks rep­re­sent­ing spir­its, an­i­mals and peo­ple have been used in Kwak­waka’wakw dances and cer­e­monies for thou­sands of years.
