Description : Many of the large sculptures on the ramp once formed parts of the cedar plank houses in which First Nations families lived. Some of the carvings functioned as posts supporting roof beams, while others stood decoratively against interior or exterior walls. Coastal house sculptures generally represent ancestors or powerful beings associated with the history of the residents of the house.
