Haida Wolf - 'Ghuuts' - Copper Series, Framed Art CardBill Reid (Haida)
The Wolf to the Haidas was a completely imaginary creature, existing on the mainland, but never seen on Haida Gwaii. Nonetheless, he is an important figure in the crest hierarchy. Troublesome, volatile, ferociously playful in Haida mythology, he is usually represented in profile, squatting with a long snout with flared nostrils, large and many teeth including canines, prominent ears, and curled-over tail.
The Wolf had a special significance to Reid since it is a principal crest of his family.
