Jim Schoppert made this art entitled “Still Water #2” in 1985 in the Tlingit area. What attracted my attention in this piece was how the colors and shadows by the physical carvings accentuated the piece as a whole.
If I could know, I would ask the author how he would have set up his own piece (if that wasn’t the case), as it seems that the second and fourth sections should be off-set vertically in order to line up the carvings (as I have amateurly edited this photo below). In this more off-set piece, it portrays a subtle hint of waves, which follows the title of the piece.
Big thanks to the SLAM (State Library, Archives, and Museum) for letting us explore!
