Bentwood Box Crown
Bentwood Box Crown, 2019
oxidized silver, peridot, bear claws
Collection of the Artist
This design is a collaboration with my father Henry Green, with each silver panel in the style of a traditional Ts’msyen bentwood box. The panels represent the three realms of the Ts’msyen world: sea, land and sky. These are indicated by the eagle and killer whale designs and the bear claws. Bear claws were often used on powerful headdresses worn by shamans.
