Harvard Gardens is honoured to pay tribute to First Nations culture with an installation by Robert Davidson, one of Canada’s most important artists and a leader in the renaissance of Haida art and culture.
The great-grandson of famed First Nations artist Charles Edenshaw, Mr. Davidson is a Northwest Coast native of Haida and Tlingit descent whose work is sought by collectors around the world.
Supernatural Eye, his sculpture at Harvard Gardens, is inspired by the mythical creatures that inhabit Haida Gwaii. The piece blends traditional First Nations iconography with a modern style. Fronting Harvard Gardens’ private clubhouse, the sculpture will be in place when Elgin House residents move in.
In the meantime, the Supernatural Eye can be observed in the courtyard of the Surrey Arts Centre.
