For hundreds of years before man set foot in the Pacific Northwest, nature was at work creating the old growth cedar forests. To their earliest known occupants, the Haida, these ancient forest’s represented a natural living entity that was to be respected and protected. Under the canopy of the giant cedar, these forests provided unselfish renewable resources in the form of fresh water, fish, wildlife, shelter and art.
Unfortunately, not all men attracted to these forests have been guardians, or their best keeper. Demand for lumber, colonization and railroad development at the end of the 1800's brought about the beginning of the end for many of these great forests. What took nature centuries to create and grow, literally took two loggers, crosscut saw and felling axe in hand, only hours to bring down. All that remained of these once great cedars were their massive root structures or “Jacks”, left in the soil for nature to begin her next creative endeavour. Due to erosion and run off caused by these massive first cuts, many of these areas became naturally flooded and hence, her next artistic workshop began.
Over a century of time, hidden below the surface of these lakes, the “Jacks” were transformed. Through the constant and powerful forces of water, wave and sand action these forgotten “Jacks ”have been crafted and carved by nature, their majesty and mystery stand once again, perhaps as the Haida believe. . .
Their ancestors return in the form of nature, as a reminder of their past.
Perhaps as a reminder of our past, nature has sent us this unique art form.
