The most characteristic single design unit in Northwest Coast Art is the formline ovoid, used as eyes, joints and other connections. The ovoid takes a specific form which can however, be varied in proportion. The copper is a shield like shape, that got it's name because it had crest figures presented at ceremonial events in this specific shape including the defining T design dividing the parts of the form. Some of these coppers where several feet tall.
