Possilby a Coast Salish figure. Russell Smith suggested the style was similar to objects carved in the Blunden Harbour area, however the figure appears to be more similar in style to Coast Salish figures, e.g., the figures on a 19th C Cowichan plank drum (Chicago Field Museum #85491), an 18th C Squamish figure (British Museum #Am,Van160), and a larger Saanich effigy figure (CMC #VII G 357).
