Janet Walker created this ring design as a representation of a traditional Northwest Coast Style Carved Bentwood Box. Traditionally a bentwood box was created using hot water or steam to bend the wood. The outer side was artistically carved to include totems and mystical characters. I imagined a village after a flood with a box of dried salmon floating downstream, waterlogged, with only one carved corner sticking up waiting to be found.
