graphite on paper 23”x32”

Mark George, nephew of Paul George, great nephew of Chief Dan George, is a Coast Salish Indian of the Burrard Nation, North Vancouver.

I sense Mark’s spirit longs for the old days of his ancestors; his heart for earlier times. A skilled carver in his own right, Mark struggles to embody, rather than reproduce, the spiritual totems of his ancestors.
His small carvings are no less wonderful than the twenty-four foot totem pole, seen behind, that he carved for the Lonsdale Quay, North Vancouver.
