Jim Hart, a jeweler, sculptor, printmaker and designer, began his career as an apprentice to the legendary Bill Reid. After carving his first major totem pole in 1999 in honour of his family, he received his name as Haida hereditary chief, 7idansuu. He was born into the Eagle Clan at Old Massett, on Haida Gwaii (formerly the Queen Charlotte Islands). He now divides his time between Old Massett and Vancouver. In 2011, his cast bronze sculpture, The Three Watchmen, took a prominent place outside the National Gallery of Canada, on the ceremonial route in the Nation’s Capital.
