Native Carvings

Quadra is absolutely crawling with artists, creating all kinds of lovely things using every type of medium.  Roads are littered with Artist Studios.  Love places like this.  Every June there is the Quadra Island Studio Tour.  

On a drive around the populated part of the island, I took some photos of whatever native carving art we came across.  Some of it was at the  Wei Wai Kai Nation at the Cape Mudge Band village.
