Mask Portraits

A Tribute To Kwakuitl Chief Willie ‘Smoky-Top’ Seaweed


Mask Portrait paintings depict the dramatic blend of realism and mythology. Each legendary Mask was originally carved by Kwakuitl Chief Willie "Smoky- Top" Seaweed and subsequently painted as a Mask Portrait by Artist Daniel B. Cain. The Mask Portrait paintings appear to suspend a Mask before a section of large traditional Dance Screen motif painted in the background. Each original Dance Screen was also created by Willie Seaweed.

These remarkable Mask Portraits respectfully represents this truly one of a kind Tribute To Kwakuitl Chief Willie "Smoky- Top" Seaweed. The University of Washington provided the Copyright permission to allow Danny to make it possible to bring these exquisity carved Masks to life!

Like the great Canadian Artists, Jack Shadbolt and Emily Carr, who's paintings were influenced by the northwest coast First Nations culture, Daniel Cain chose to paint Masks as portraits.

Such an accomplishment, to paint portraitures in the exact likeness of the actual Masks, is a first in North America. Painting Masks as portraits had never been done before. "Painting Mask Portraits is my way of bringing these dramatically beauitful Mask to life on canvas."

Daniel professionally carved for over twenty years, most of his carvings sell in local Galleries, including Hill's Native Art, The Largest North American Native Art Gallery. Danny's works are also sought by private Collectors throughout North America.
