Along with Haida carver Reg Davidson, carver, goldsmith and painter Jim Hart produced Haida Artifacts: An Exhibition (1990). In 1999, Hart received his name 7idansuu (pronounced “ee-dan-soo”) as an Eagle Clan hereditary chief. It was once held by Charles Edenshaw. In 2003 he installed The Three Watchmen, a 14-foot bronze sculpture at the entrance to an apartment residence in Kerrisdale’s Quilchena Park in Vancouver. Hart supervised the casting of the sculpture at the Tallix Art Foundry in Beacon, New York, after two years of work. Hart, who lives in Masset, received the Order of British Columbia in 2003.
