Tahltan-Tlingit artist Dempsey Bob has devoted a lifetime to the craft of woodcarving. His work arises from a northwest coast carving tradition that stretches back for centuries. A contemporary master, Dempsey has advanced this form - creating sculptural works that expand on traditional designs. In the BC rainforest near the Skeena River, Dempsey Bob creates masks for our camera. For him the great trees, giant mountains, and mighty rivers are his inspiration. We are, as he puts it, in sculpture country.
