Titled ’namaxsala, which means “to travel in a boat together” in the Kwakwala language, the permanent sculpture is located outside in the lower pond beside the Museum’s Grand Hall. The piece is inspired by a story that the artist learned from her grandfather, Fred Cook, who helped a wolf cross a treacherous stretch of water in a boat. ’namaxsala speaks to Barkhouse’s deep environmental concerns and the need for humankind’s respectful cooperation with the natural world.
