Some of the most impressive works of Pacific Coast Northwestern Native art are the large wall murals found at the Museum of Civilization near Ottawa, Canada. Not only are they colorful but they are intricately designed. Some of the longhouses at the museum's Grand Hall exhibit features giant wall murals.

The Tsimshian house at the Grand Hall features a very complex bear design at the center of its front. Part of this central design is shown below. The article on Pacific Coast Northwestern Native longhouses has a shot of the entire front with this bear flanked by two wolves.
Another house from the Grand Hall is the Nuu-Chah-Nulth one which also has an impressive wall mural. It features two thunderbirds with lightning snakes above them. The snakes represent the supernatural servants of the thunderbirds. Flanking the lightning snakes and thunderbirds are supernatural codfishes.
