“Pacific Bridge” is a co-mingling of several design styles from throughout the Pacific. Many references to Northwest Coast formline art can be found in this design; also parts and portions of several different human and animistic figures. It can be read in any position. Most of the spiral work is drawn from the curvilinear traditions of flat design from Siberia, especially from the Amur River area. Other design systems from which I have drawn inspiration in this piece include Maori tattoo motifs in addition to Dyak, Melanesian and early Chinese design. – Barry Herem
