|The Haida Indians from the Queen Charlotte Islands, the western-most islands of Canada, expressed their deep mystic consciousness in their carving of this unique form of slate. Found only in one valley, it was carved with a gouging tool and polished smooth with dried fish skin and a natural sponge called a sea potato. Here we had one stone, one people and one place with its pervasive spirit and the carvers who sought to express it. Origin: North West Coast American Indian, Circa 1870|
