Treasures of the Tsimshian in Vancouver
The University of British Columbia's Museum of Anthropology opened a new exhibition this month.
Treasures of the Tsimshian from the Dundas Collection is a major traveling exhibition of 48 artifacts collected by the Rev. Robert J. Dundas at Metlakatla, BC in 1863.
MOA is the last stop on the exhibition’s cross-country tour, which began in April 2006 in Tsimshian territory. That's where these important cultural pieces originated and also where they had not been seen for more than a century.
The exhibition at UBC includes ten Northwest Coast horn spoons and one bent-corner bowl recently acquired by Westerkirk Works of Art Inc. They were not shown at any of the other Canadian venues
Following their display through June 7, 2008 at MOA, the objects will be returned to their present owners, who purchased them at auction in October 2006.
