Comments: Creation Myth by world reknowned Haida carver/artist Bill Reid. Bill Reid Rotunda. Museum of Anthropology at UBC, Vancouver, Canada. MOA has the world's largest collection of works by Haida artist Bill Reid. The Bill Reid Rotunda displays his famous sculpture The Raven and the First Men as well as some of his other works in gold, silver, argillite and wood. With the assistance of several other artists, Reid created this massive work out of a giant block of laminated yellow cedar, beginning in the fall of 1978, and took two years to complete, with work completing on April 1, 1980. It was commissioned by Walter and Marianne Koerner and unveiled by HRH the Prince of Wales in 1980. It depicts a moment in the ancestral past of the Haida people when Raven found the first humans in a clamshell on the beach. For many years, this work was featured on the Canadian $20 dollar bill.
