Set of 4 coasters - Bear design by artist Keith Tate. Laminated with cork bottom. Standard size: 3 3/4 inches square. Made in Canada.
While the bear symbolizes the strength of the great hunter, his presence is conceived as that of an elder statesman. As such, his role is often paralleled with that of a respected chief.
Keith Tait was born into the Gitsan Nation at Kispiox in the province of British Columbia. He was trained in art and design at the Gitamaax School of northwest art at Ksan Village in Hazelton. Keith Tait’s graphic sensibility is reflected in the bold precision of his artwork. His designs provide a unique and natural expression of the Northwest Coast traditions of the Bella Coola region.
