Kwakwaka'wakw artist - Rande is a strong leader for his people and carries two chieftainships, the Hamatam/Seagull and Gigalgam from the ancient ancestor Kwanusila/Thunderbird. This story can be seen on the 27′ totem pole he was commissioned to carve for the Museum Volkenkunde in the Netherlands in 2012. He continually pushes the boundaries by using his accumulation of knowledge, heritage, and experiences to create provocative and beautiful works that challenge the viewer to think.

When The Eclipse Broke Through by Rande Cook (Kwakwaka'wakw), hand carved red cedar. 39" x 39". "It's a spirit whale and like the eclipse only shows himself so very little. But with the force of the moon pulling in the tides the spirit whale appears bringing fortune to all. The piercing in the moon are the shadows of the eclipse breaking through, after the moon is once illuminated again guiding the fortunate into prosperity life will balance out and the new era will be at one with the past".
