The large glass wall ‘The Great Wave’ enters into a symbiotic relationship with the bronze sculpture ‘The spirit of the Haida Gwaii’ by famed North West Coast Indian artist Bill Reid. The canoe, filled with figures from Haida mythology, appears to be leaving the beach and heading into ‘The Great Wave’ towards the open ocean.
