Killer Whale

About this object


Walter Koerner commissioned the panels from Reid in the late 1950s or early 1960s, to be placed in his garden. The panels were part of a lean-to, made to protect some other large Northwest Coast carvings which are now part of the Museum of Anthropology's collections.

Physical description
