Based on studies of a whale skull in Rose Harbour, an outpost at the southern point of Haida Gwaii, the skeleton is symbolic of the whaling days for which this settlement was established. The bones have taken on the patina of the environment, and it is encrusted with moss and algae reflecting the dense forest and ocean colors surrounding it. Ragged colored ropes used to haul it to this place remain.
