Wolf is a symbol of loyalty, great strength, determination, and strong family ties. Highly respected, the wolf is seen as having a great likeness to people, as they form family units, hunt in groups, and mate for life. They are considered wise, understanding, and steadfast. Some First Nation groups believe that great hunters are reincarnated as wolves.
Born in 1953 in Bella Bella to the Heiltsuk Nation Ivan Wilson began his journey as an artist in his late teen years. He always felt the art inside him but had to work to find a way to let it out. He began learning from famous carver Dennis Matilpi and developed his skills in wood carving and totems. Later he transitioned to fine engraving work in silver and gold, being taught and strongly influenced by his late uncles and famous artists Stanley George and Steven Hunt. Ivan is now known for creating beautiful traditional designs, in a contemporary flare using fine detail and strong linework.
