Description

Perfect in every detail, this attractive frog bowl is a reproduction of a Haida bowl originally carved in wood, dating from 1890-1894: 13.75 X 10 cm. These argillite reproduction pieces in high density resin are moulded from casts of original argillite Haida carvings from the Canadian Museum of History’s collection. Argillite is a soft slate found only on Haida Gwaii (the Queen Charlotte Islands); it was first quarried in the 1820’s on Slatechuck Mountain.
