A WORK of art took up special residence at the University of Northern BC campus here today.

Moon Face, carved by Tsimshian Cliff Bolton (soo-natz), was unveiled in the entry hallway of the UNBC by university president Dr. George Iwama.

The artwork was donated to hte university by Skeena Native Development Society.

The natural shading in the wood gives it the appearance of being a moon during an eclipse, Bolton said, adding that he carved the piece probably in the 1990s.

“When you do art, you hope it will be put out where peopple can see it,” said Bolton, adding he was happy it was at the university.

He said the wood for the carving came from an old ancient tree, probably about 1,200 years old.
