This pendant is created from a Canadian quarter coin: its reverse polished and engraved to create an intricate formline design. The fine detailing is characteristic of Haisla artist Lyle Wilson’s work. Born in 1955 in Kitamaat village, BC, Wilson considers himself a lifelong student and carver. He attended UBC and later studied printmaking at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and enjoys analyzing historical works of Northwest Coast art in museum and private collections.

Considered one of the Northwest Coast's pre-eminent native artists, Wilson served as the artist-in-residence at MOA for many years. He has researched and experimented with Northwest Coast painting for over 30 years and has become a major figure in rebuilding recognition for painted art, old and new. He also creates works in carved silver, wood and steel. Wilson’s work has been showcased in many museums, galleries and public installations.
