Haida Killer Whale 'Skaana': Copper Series Matted Art CardBill Reid (Haida)
Bill Reid portrayed the grace and vitality of the Killer Whale through the articulate elegance of Haida design, the bold form lines curving richly and fluently. the spouting blow hole, the curving dorsal fin and the symmetrical tail flukes are the distinguishing features for the sea mammal.
In legends, the Killer Whale is the Lord of the Undersea World, or Chief of the Ocean People, the dreaded sea monsters and fiercest of all the supernatural people, who live in towns deep under the sea. They capsize the canoes of those travelling on the water, dragging down canoe and occupants into the depths.
