Haida Raven (Xuuya) Art Card
This timeless art card bears the graceful Raven design by renowned Haida artist Bill Reid. For the Haida people, the Raven is a cultural hero and bringer of light, responsible for dispelling darkness and discovering humankind. Bill Reid's Raven encompasses all the classic elements of Haida traditions with its perfectly balanced asymmetric design. The sweeping curvilinear lines flow with a fluid grace giving the bird continue movement and a vitality befitting its place in myth.
Bill Reid, whose iconic works can be found on display throughout MOA, is one of Canada’s most well-known and influential artists. He was proclaimed a National Living Treasure and was instrumental in inspiring people to reclaim their cultural heritage. Collected internationally and much-honoured, Bill Reid created, among his best-known sculptures, The Spirit of Haida Gwaii at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, D.C. (The Black Canoe, 1991) and at the Vancouver International Airport (The Jade Canoe, 1996).
