Above: An entryway image to the Kwisitis Visitor Centre that shows a cut-away view of the west coast shoreline, acting as a backdrop to sculpted kelp, fish and birds. The painting meets with a coral-encrusted base that envelopes the visitor greeting station.

Below: Replicas of a First Nations whale hunt and longhouse diorama. Shown left, a monochromatic image illustrating daily-life in a Nuu-chah-nulth longhouse. Shown right, a backdrop image to a life-size long boat and sculpted paddlers, depicting a traditional whaling village that was reconstructed visually from limited photo images and largely oral tradition.
