Description by Artist: ‘Kwa-Gulth Raven & Sisiutl‘ – “The Raven is the main crest of the Hunt family of Fort Rupert, B.C. And the main crest of my father, the late Henry Hunt. The Sisiutl is the main crest of my mother, the late Helen Hunt, who was from Kingcome. In my design the Raven has its’ wings outstretched and his feet are wrapped on the eyebrows of the Sisiutl. The middle face, (entrance to the house) is the face of a man that the two-headed serpent, or Sisiutl, has eaten. He has his hands up the sides of the door and his mouth forms the entrance to the house. The two heads of the serpent run along the base of the house front and up the sides. These two crests combined tell visitors to our village that the people who live in the house are from the Raven clan, and the Sisiutl have married into this clan.”
