Xhuwaji - Haida Grizzly Bear: Centennial Series: Framed Art CardBill Reid, Haida
Bill Reid's Xhuwaji, Haida Grizzly Bear first appeared on a ceremonial drum crafted by the Sam family of Ahousaht, B.C. Two years later, Reid adapted the design for reproduction as silkscreen prints, with proceeds benefitting the Artists for Kids Trust. Xhuwaji (Grizzly Bear) was a favorite character of Bill Reid's and he often used it in his jewelry designs and sculpture. Xhuwaji is an important crest among the Haida Nation and plays a significant role in ancient Haida narratives.
Building upon the broad range of his expression, Bill Reid translated his original designs of animal crests into limited edition Serigraph, Lithograph, Woodcut prints and drawings. This is a reproduction of one of those limited edition Serigraphs.
