The Dance Screen by James Hart

James Hart created this enormous masterpiece between 2010 and 2013. This avant-garde work employs traditional Haida carving techniques, portraying the gateway between the material and spiritual worlds.

Made of red cedar, it incorporates mica, yew, wire, and abalone shells. Hart studied under master artists Bill Reid and Robert Davidson.

This was a gift of Audain Museum Founders Michael Audain and Yoshiko Karasawa.
