DEADMAN’S CRESCENT

This is Deadman island,its in Tofino’s harbour. The Natives would take their dead there and put them up in the trees. (Which was not a bad idea if they died of something contagious!) They believed it was Evil spirits that killed their loved ones and so wanted the evil spirits to be elsewhere!

They would put them in small Bentwood boxes. Many times the limbs would have to be broken to fit into these beautifully hand crafted wooden boxes.

The crescent moon adds a nice touch.

  1. Well they were secluded there weren’t they – no one would bother them there. The layers of color from sky to water are interesting. I see you’ve changed your blog header.
