Tlingit art refers to the artistic traditions of the Tlingit people, an indigenous group from the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America. Tlingit art is characterized by its intricate designs and use of natural materials, such as wood, stone, and animal hides. Tlingit artists are known for their skill in creating totem poles, which are large, vertical sculptures that tell stories and commemorate important events or individuals. Other forms of Tlingit art include weaving, beadwork, and carving. Tlingit art often features motifs that are unique to the Tlingit culture, such as the ovoid shape and the split U. These motifs are used to represent both real and mythical creatures, as well as other elements of Tlingit cosmology. Tlingit art continues to thrive today, as modern artists incorporate traditional techniques and motifs into their work.
