"Chilkat weavings [...] have great symbolic power: for example a Chilkat blanket with a Sea Bear motif is considered to be the actual skin of the mythical Sea Bear. [In oral histories, whales] are associated with strength, dignity, longevity and prosperity" (Shearar 2000: 28, 62)  - Understanding Northwest Coast Art: A Guide to Crest, Beings and Symbols
