A silver-embossed Haida Wolf Drum crest.
Building upon the broad range of his expression, Bill Reid translated his original designs of animal crests into limited editions silk screen or woodcut prints and drawings. This is a reproduction of one of those drawings. The Wolf is an important figure in the crest hierarchy of the Haida people. Troublesome, volatile, and ferociously playful, he is usually represented with a long snout, sharp fangs, a bushy tail, and ears slanting backwards. The Wolf was one of Bill Reid's personal crests.
