Haida Argillite Carvings

For approximately 200 years, Haida artists have carved argillite sculptures. Argillite is a slate rock found on Slatechuck Mountain near the village of Skidegate on Haida-Gwaii. The sculptures carved today reflect the ancient traditions and myths of Haida culture. Intricate figures unique in their symbolic representation are the focus of our selection of argillite carvings.
