A Bill Reid Haida Art Fan

I was the guest speaker at a Toronto area Rotary club yesterday and I noticed that one of the members had a bolo tie featuring a northwest indian art design of a thunderbird. When I asked him about it, he said that it was designed by Haida artist Bill Reid. Then we talked about some of Bill Reid's work including his large sculptures such as the giant Haida whale at the Museum of Civilization in Gatineau.
