The Orca or Whale is known as the guardian of the sea and a symbol of kindness. Orcas live in pods or family groups that live and hunt together. Because of this nature, they are known for their strong sense of family values and unity in numbers.
Tsimshian native artist Bill Helin enjoys a very rewarding career as a creative gold engraver, painter, woodcarver, and book illustrator. He loves to paint mythological images to educate people on the Tsimshian nation's history, and the many stories passed down through his ancestors. His greatest passion, however, is to spiritually represent and bond individuals together through the use of native Life Crest symbols. Bill Helin's art is reproduced in collaboration with the artist, and royalties are paid to the artist on each item sold.
