Bentwood Box

Bentwood Box

From the collection of the Alaska Native Heritage Center; by Tsimshian artist David A. Boxley and his son David Robert Boxley. Boxley Sr. says, "This box was created at the Heritage Center in conjunction with the bent box classes I taught to High School. and Adult Students. The Design is Eagle and Wolves to honor his grandfather and my children.  The style of box design is called "corner oriented" design.  It is basically a chest design bent over the two opposing corners.  I am proud to have my work in this facility." 2001
