Dorothy Grant’s Scarves Collection
Woven Silk and Modal Scarf designed by Dorothy Grant
This scarf design, Killerwhale, is inspired by this majestic creature for its powerful presence.
It is a bold Haida form-line art design and feather-weight to touch, yet it is warm for any season. The borders are a cresting wave design, inspired by a traditional Haida basketry design.
The colours are:
Cream/Black/Red – that’s popular Haida art colors
Royal Blue – for the ocean
Gray/Black – for the natural color of Killer-whale.
Woven with Silk and Modal Scarf.
This scarf measures 64 in (Length) by 25 in (Width)
The history behind the art/legend
The Killer whale in Haida legends represents power and boldness. He/she is the ruler of the underworld; he/she is our ancestor. The Haida People’s belief is in an after-life, as we may come back as Killer whales.
