Nawila Tsula Men's Wallet with original artwork by BC artist Andy Everson. 

The story behind the art:

A long time ago a man was warned by the Creator that the world would be covered by a great flood and that he must wait for a gigantic sea monster named 'Namxiyalegiyu (Something Terrible) to rise from the depths. When the rain ceased to stop, this great monster appeared. The man climbed onto its humongous back as it sank once again into the depths of the ocean. The Creator gave the man the supernatural power to breathe underwater as 'Namxiyalegiyu protected him.

When the flood had subsided, 'Namxiyalegiyu returned the man to the surface of the water and put him ashore at Xwalkw where the mouth of the Nimpkish river would later appear. The man took on the name 'Namukustolis (Only One in the World), and became the first ancestor of the 'Namgis people.

In honor of the protection given to 'Namukustolis, his descendants to the Tsitsal 'walagame' nami'ma of the 'Namgis continue to use 'Namxiyalegiyu as their primary crest. 'Namxiyalegiyu is know to be so immense that the tides rise and fall with it's movement. It's face is characterized by a large wide mouth with many teeth and gills set in it's cheeks. The center of it's forehead features a magic quartz crystal and it's brows are surmounted by supernatural horns. It has the body of a halibut and the large dorsal fin of a killer whale. It is so massive the 'Namukustolis was a mere speck on it's back.  - andyeverson.com
