Salish Vision

Category: 
Point has been instrumental in the resurgence of Coast Salish art, drawing inspiration from the stories of her ancestors. The nine prints included here employ a circle shape, referencing the spindle whorl, a tool customarily used by Coast Salish women to prepare wool. They also reference Thunderbird, a giant supernatural creature that causes thunder by flapping its wings and emits lightning from its eyes.
