Weaver’s Welcome

Created by the artists Brian Perry (Port Gamble S'Klallam), Anthony Jones (Port Gamble S'Klallam), David Franklin, and Preston Singletary (Tlingit), this figure welcomes guests to the Burke Museum in the tradition of similar iconic figures that have stood on the shores of the Salish Sea for generations. Symbols used here are found in many historical objects in the Burke's collection, including baskets and carvings.
