Txeemsim by Steve Hansen, Nisga’a & Haida Artist
“Txeemsim, who is sent by his grandfather to the Nisga’a people to help bring from darkness to light. The red cedar and yellow cedar inlays represent the darkness and light of the world in which the Nisga’a were living in. The face emerging from top is Txeemsim. The symbolism of the surrounding circles is that of the suns of our solar system and the winged planet seen in many ancient myths and lore.”
