Carved and painted rectangular cedar chest with removable overlapping lid, featuring crest art in red, black and blue pigment. The two sides and one end of the chest are a single piece of wood which has been shaped and bent by the kerfing technique. Painted on the long side panels of the chest are designs representing a large head of a creature over a small rectangular body with human hands on either side. This chest may be by the Hieltsuk master artist Du'kwayella (Captain Richard Carpenter, 1841 - 1931). Objects like these were traded or given as gifts at potlatches (ceremonial feasts) - which may explain why Newcombe acquired it in Haida territory.
