Haida Inspired Whale Mirror Illustration by Mike Del Rizzo The art styles of Northwest Coast First Nations vary from region to region and from band to band.The more common styles are Haida, Salish, Nootka, Kwagiutl, Tsimshian and Tlingit.
However, for one reason or another, all of these styles are referred to as Haida.Therefore, in this article, I refer to my piece as being Haida inspired.This piece is actually my interpretation of the art form and doesn't represent any one style very closely.
I created this project out of my great respect for the Natives of the West Coast and their art and culture, and hope it will be accepted in the spirit it was intended.This is a fairly challenging intarsia project, comprised of a 'natural' whale and a 'stylized' whale, set on a mirror background.
The natural whale is easy to do, while the Haida one presents some interesting fitting challenges.The mirror makes this piece functional and also adds a look of water.Have fun with this project and use your imagination.
Select the WoodThe selection of wood is a very creative part of intarsia and the wood you choose can have a significant impact on the success of your project....
