Gwaai Edenshaw Pendants Available to Support Anti-Tanker Animation

Haida carver Gwaai Edenshaw has released photos of the detailed bronze and silver pendants that he has cast from the masks of characters from the Haida animation Haida Raid 2.  These pendants are rewards for the Indiegogo campaign to support the production of the animation’s sequel, Haida Raid 3: Save Our Waters.

Gwaai will also make a gold pendant for as a higher level reward if someone goes for that level of support!
