Ceramic Mug with Moon Mask design by Klatle-Bhi.
The Moon is a marker of time and a feminine power or influence over nature. The Moon has the ability to change our moods and thoughts and controls the tides which affect our food cycle. Full moons are credited with providing direction, vision and guidance. The Moon is identified in Pacific Northwest Coast First Nations art as a circle with a human face in the center, and often depicted with short rays around the edge.
Klatle-Bhi (pronounced “Klath-Bay”) is an artist of Squamish and Kwakwaka’wakw ancestry. He grew up in the Kwakiutl culture of mask dancing, singing, and potlatching and has played a prominent role in the recent revival of the sea-going canoe journeys. Klatle-Bhi’s art is an expression of his personal and spiritual journey, as well as a reflection of his respective cultures. The art of Klatle-Bhi is reproduced in collaboration with the artist and royalties are paid to the artist on each item sold.
