    Canoe journey along the coast
    [limited edit]


    This is the story of a Haida canoe journey, a limited edition print of a painting by Haida artist, Eric Parnell. The Haida like all coastal Aboriginal peoples, were as at home, and as skilled, on the ocean as on the land. The sea was their highway and they often journey from community to community to visit, to share celebrations, and for war. Eric is showing a peaceful visit, no weapons are carried, there is a light-heartedness in the features of the three paddlers. They wear the traditional woven cedar hats, and use the gracefully shaped paddles. There are figures on the paddles, just as there are on the ones carved today and used for ceremonial or spirit renewal journeys-- or simply for the joy of travelling in the huge cedar canoes that can ride the heaviest waves. The print is #37 of a limited edition of 100 prints, signed and numbered by the Eric Parnell, copyright, 2014. Printed on 100 lb acid free smooth paper. V 36 cm(14”) x h28cm (11”) (mailed with rigid cardboard, in clear, acid-free plastic wrapper)
