Other Wood Carvings
Pacific Northwest Coast Native Carvings and Sculptures are mainly made in wood, argillite, silver, gold, bronze, stone, ivory, and glass. Most of the following carvings and sculptures are inspired by Haida and Kwakiutl or Kwakwaka'wakw traditions.
Contemporary Indigenous Carving
Carvings today often depict a West Coast Native story, mythical spirits, animals, family crests, totem poles or replicas thereof, bentwood boxes, talking sticks, rattles, tools, panels, paddles, canoes, and other carvings as well as contemporary interpretations. There have been many monumental sculptures created in bronze and cedar by Northwest Coast artists, which have been installed all around the world.
