Visit to MOA

The images are from a recent trip to the UBC Museum of Anthropology. The narrative is an excerpt from a longer piece on the Raven creation stories from BC's Haida nation. The museum artifacts and grounds are used as allusions to what's being told in the story. Sometimes literally, sometimes suggestive. I'm not that knowledgeable of First Nation artforms and symbology, so if I make crass mistakes in what's being shown vs. what's discussed, I apologize up front and claim any offense is out of ignorance and not intentional.
