    Utilitarian kitchenware was an integral part of a communal feast called a potlatch, a traditional feast central to many cultures of indigenous peoples of the Canadian Pacific Northwest Coast including the Haida  who have existed for over 17,000 years.  This antique thin, large and elegant, and boldly decorated Haida spoon is well designed with motifs like the whale’s tail, the eye, and a feather that imparts great visual and symbolic strength.  The style and coloring of Northwest Coast Canadian art is so bold and unique, their pieces are readily recognized.
