Sun- Life, Energy & Knowledge
The Sun is a symbol of creation and life’s energy. In some of the stories the Sun is a person, people seek him out looking for assistance and his knowledge of the world. In many coastal myths, the sun is a metaphor for enlightenment and knowledge
Jacob Lewis was born into the Squamish tribe of the Coast Salish Nation in 1955. He has been carving since the tender age of seven and became prolific in his 20’s.
He’s become internationally renowned for his elaborate original designs, and is best known for his ability to bring traditional and contemporary forms together. Although Jacob adheres to the established rules of Northwest Coast Native art in shape and form, he adds a modern dimension that is completely his own. It is this tension between the old and the new that makes Jacob’s work so compelling and alive.
