Haida Canoe Carving

Hewn from argillite rock around 1880, this canoe filled with rowers is from the Queen Charlotte Islands, British Columbia, Canada.

The Haida Indians are noted for their fine craftsmanship of canoes carved from red cedars. They also used these trees to make elaborate totem poles, houses, carved boxes, and dishes.
