Sun

The Sun represents abundance, life, healing, and warmth. Released from a box by the Raven, the Sun Chief inhabits the sky and could only be reached by climbing a chain of arrows. The Sun is often carved on totems and masks and sits atop the tallest totem pole.

Raven

The creator, transformer, and trickster. He is mischievous and playful, symbolizing truth, knowledge, and transformation. Raven demonstrates the complexity of nature, and reminds us that not everyone sees the world in the same way. While a trickster, in many myths he is an aid to the creator, acting as the messenger from the sky, clarifying truths for the people, earning him the name “keeper of secrets”. In mythology the Raven released the sun and moon into the sky and discovered mankind in a clamshell.

Nelson Cross

Born to the Eagle Clan of Haida Gwaii. He is from the legendary family of John Cross and Gordon Cross. He began carving at the age of twenty. He first learned to draw and carve under the guidance of Pat Dickson and Wilford Stevens. Through independent study of the traditional Haida arts and using every opportunity to practice. he became sufficiently developed to carve with late legend Bill Reid. He also, in 1985-86, worked with Reid on the "Loo Taasa" Canoe. He produces silk screens and carves wood, argillite, gold and silver. The design of his silver is particularly robust and energetic.
