The Dogfish represents leadership. It is the symbol of persistence and strength. This spiny small shark is feared for its fierceness and possesses solitary characteristics such as bravery and uniqueness. The Dogfish is an important family crest and mythical being in Haida Culture.
Born and raised in Alert Bay, British Columbia on Cormorant Island to the Nimpkish band. Harold started to learn proper implementation of designs, history, legends and art forms at a very young age. Studied under the supervision of the present day Kwakiutl master artists. With the appreciation and knowledge of Kwakiutl art, he combined his techniques with woodcarving, silversmithing and three-dimensional shaping together, designed outstanding art pieces which have contemporary feeling and a strong sense of the past.
