"Prior to contact with Europeans and the introduction of metal tools, Northwest Coast artisans developed an ingenious woodworking technique, which involved grooving, steaming and bending a single wooden plank to form the sides of the box. Three corners of the box are bent and the fourth is pegged...and the bottom is added. (Shearar 2000: 23). - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crests, Beings and Symbols
