Eagle Spirit Art Card
This striking art card bears the eye-catching Eagle Spirit design by established Haida artist Garner Moody. Eagles are known as symbols of great strength, power and prestige, and are one of two primary Haida crests.
Moody was born in Prince Rupert, BC, Canada and he was raised in Skidegate, on Haida Gwaii on May 27th, 1958. He is the nephew of prolific argillite carver, Rufus Moody. Garner Moody was artistic as a child. He remembers drawing a great deal from age 9 onwards, and he carved his first piece of argillite when he was 15. Moody moved to Vancouver in 1987 and was invited to help Bill Reid work on his full-scale ‘Lootaas’ canoe. While he was in Vancouver, Moody learned a great deal about Haida design and argillite carving from Nelson Cross, Alfie Collinson, Ron Wilson (Gitsgah) and Clayton Gladstone. Garner Moody currently lives on Haida Gwaii and focuses on argillite, gold jewelry and carving in red and yellow cedar.
