Butterfly

In Northwest Coast art, the butterfly is a symbol of transformation, as it is in many cultures. Undergoing its metamorphosis with grace, the butterfly also symbolizes balance and harmony. The beauty of nature can be seen in the many colours of the butterfly.

 

Travis Henry

Travis Henry, born in Cowichan, BC on Vancouver Island, has been carving since 1982. He was trained by the Seaweed family, who are well known and respected carvers from Alert Bay. Henry carves his silver and gold jewelry in Kwakwaka’wakw style. Henry also acts as a teacher and guide to younger artists who would like to learn about their heritage and the art of carving in precious metals. Apart from Canada, Henry’s carved jewelry can also be found in collections in Japan, the United States, Europe and Australia. Travis currently lives in Langford, BC with his young growing family.
