S-Form SculptureRod Smith (Kwakwaka’wakw)
“Another small element used for filling a space is the S-form which is derived from two halves of a U-form joined in opposite directions. These have many uses in a design; as a connecting element, as part of a leg or arm, or to create an outline. A series of s-forms within the body cavity of a creature represent the rib cage” (Stewart 1976: 22). – Looking at Indian Art of the Northwest Coast
