A limited edition serigraph print on paper titled Raven Chief Shimdiget Dem Gunhada by well-listed British Columbia First Nations’ artist Roy Henry Vickers (Canadian Tsimshian, b. 1946), created in 1975. The piece depicts the portrait of an abstract head in side profile; he is shown wearing an ornate headdress, with wide-eyed expression and open mouth. The image is rendered in stylized black and red patterns against a cream ground, reminiscent of the formline art styles found throughout indigenous Northwest Coast art. The work is signed “Roy H. Vickers, Tsimsian Tribe, Kitkatla B.C.” in pencil to the lower right. It is additionally titled to the lower center, dated to the lower left and numbered as 36 out of an edition of 98. The print is presented under TruGuard conservation glass in a wooden frame with inlay-style pattern, fitted with hanging wire to the verso.
