An exhibit on the Salish ended recently at the Seattle Art Museum. They have a bunch of photos and info up on their site (flash).

Puffin Play reminds me of both Escher and the diagram for yin and yang. I didn't even see those birds at first. And Woof is sweet.

Lovely! Coast Salish artwork is incredibly beautiful--I loved the show at SAM, and miss NW native art terribly since I moved across the country last summer. Thanks for the good links!
