Part of the Ravens and Eagles: Haida Art series

A maker of the most elaborate and sometimes outrageous masks, Reg Davidson is at the top of his class. Portrait of a Mask Maker joins him in his studio to watch him carve and share his views about Haida art. Reg does not consider himself an artist, though he has produced an impressive body of work and enjoyed a demand for his many masks.

A singer and dancer of Haida traditional compositions, he collaborates with his older brother Robert in the interpretation of stories and characters. His unique personality allows for a broad, often comical, theatrical presentation of dance.
