So, today, I was walking around Gastown with a friend of mine when we caught sight of Hill's. We had passed quite a few native art stores, but none had real appeal until I found this one. I walked in and was greeted straight away by friendly faces. As well as the faces of a wall of masks. I walked in and wow! Everything looked so good. I'm not big on buying furs but so much of the furry things here appealed to me. I actually found some tails. I spent a half an hour choosing from all their tails. I saved up my money for a specific cause but these convinced me to take out twenty dollars. I ended up being tied between a specific fox tail and a specific coyote tail. I ended up choosing the fox tail. All the tails were of very nice quality and were so soft. Especially the fox tail. It also has a nice sway to it. Overall, I liked this store enough to come review it. Which is something I don't do often. C:
I never fully appreciated North West Coast Native artwork until I did a stop over in Victoria, BC. I stumbled upon an amazing gallery on Government st. Hill's Native Art is a must see! The staff were so pleasant. They took their time assisting me and educating me in the various stories from the west coast. They should offer lectures at the local college, I dont think I could find that information in a book. My husband and I made our decision and went with a beautiful whale mask . The tallented artists that are represented in this gallery are a must see. This was my first investment in Native art, however, it will not be my last!
