Bloor-Danforth Subway 14 Spadina 20110205-4


These K'San Village House Posts were carved by Gitksan artists from Hazelton, BC. These were commissioned in 1979 by the Wigwamen Housing Corporation to commemorate the building of Wigwamen Terrace at 14 Spadina Road. These posts were carved out of red cedar, depicting an owl, a wolf and a hawk. Fedelia O'Brien carved the owl, Murphy Green carved the wolf and Chuck Heir carved the hawk. These can be seen at the eastern side of the Spadina station main entrance. This photo was taken by Richard White on February 5, 2011.
