Another great card arrived from Canada! This one features a contemporary wood carving made by Terry Star, entitled "Eagle with Frogs" (1992). Wood, paint and cedar. The artist is a member of the Tsimshian eagle clan and received training at the Royal British Columbia Museum, a prestigious learning site for carvers!

Inuit bone sculpture

A wonderful Canadian Postcrosser drew my name/address and sent me this neat card of Inuit whalebone carvings from the Winnepeg Art Gallery. They are entitled Amayuqyuq and Qallupilluq, and made by Judas Ullulaq in 1996. Not quite sure what they represent...spirit beings perhaps?
