Ghuuts - Haida Wolf: Copper Series, Framed Art CardBill Reid, Haida
Ghuuts - Haida Wolf, 1979. The Wolf to the Haida 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.
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.
