Artist Statement : "The Eagle is a family crest from Henry's father and grandmother. This design of a dancer dressed as an Eagle is inspired by the dances of the Tsimshian people. All that we see of the dancer is the face in the centre and the arm. The rest of the design depicts the headdress and the rest of the dance regalia."
