Serigraph: Ink on Paper
This Salish Path serigraph is based on Point’s design for a new public art project at the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Museum of Anthropology. The original design evolved from an earlier serigraph, Peripheral Visions - Salish Footprint (2006).
The imagery is based on the whorls and lines of a thumb or toe print, transformed using distinctive Salish elements and incorporating many of the life forms found in the land, sea and skies.
Many of the roads and trails around UBC follow traditional Salish paths and this artwork emphasizes the Salish connection to the site; a reminder that the land is Musqueam territory and a welcome from the Musqueam people to this territory.
