Description of Work:
The piece that harmonizes the salmon theme, a contemporary colour blended aluminum Fish Trap. Fish silhouettes are pierced out from the one-inch aluminum and gently rounded so as not to leave any sharp edges. The negative fish silhouettes make a positive design element ... roots, from the great western red cedar.
Salish Markers and Medallion Inlay.
For thousands of years salmon have been integral to the maturity of the Musqueam nation and culture.
Markers like these traditionally identified places and boundaries; these two basalt Salish Markers represent the journeys that salmon must make in order to continue the cycle of life and maintain their survival.
