"Halley's Comet"

This print is Robert Sebastian's representation of Halley's Comet, one of a dozen recognized with native names. This is another example of his personal style: an entire print will be coloured with varied shades of one colour. This was considered innovative at the time. However, many Tsimshian artists have now adopted this style and it has become contemporary. One day perhaps, it will be considered as traditional. Spend 1 day admiring the comet.
