The housefront painting seen here inspired a reconstruction at The Royal British Columbia Museums Totem Park. Also of note is the sisiutl and thunderbird figures atop the adjacent building. The sisiutl (double headed serpent) is one of the most powerful crests and mythological creatures of the Kwaka'wakw and other indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest.
The house with the sisiutl belonged to Chief Sewid. The painted house on the right belonged to Chief Skow.
