Matted Art Cards by Richard Shorty, Northern Tuchone
These matted art cards feature the art of prolific Northern Tuchone artist Richard Shorty.
The Heron is an expert fisher and therefore represents patience. Its long legs and elegant beak give it an elegance that often leads it to also be associated with purity and grace.
The Hummingbird can be seen flying in amongst the trees and bushes in urban and rural landscapes across British Columbia. Traditionally the Hummingbird is seen as a joyful messenger, and is a symbol of healing, health and joy.
The Wolf is a symbol of family, leadership and strength.
The Frog is the voice of the people and a symbol of innocence, stability and good luck.
The Turtle represents Land and continuity. It is not a symbol found within Northwest Coast Indigenous art and culture, but it is a central figure within the art and culture of many Plains Nations from across Canada and the United States. The Turtle features prominently in many origin stories.
