Spirit of the Mountain by Xwalacktun

Xwalacktun is a masterful Squamish Nation Carver. His English name is Rick Harry. I met him many years ago when he unveiled his dramatic sculpture, Spirit of the Mountain at Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver. He is also a wonderful storyteller and I was honoured when he came to Bowen Island to be part of my reconciliation initiative, Building Bridges Through Art at the Gallery last May. He said he enjoyed my salmon dinner. You can learn more about his work at his website: www.xwalacktun.ca
