SOLD FLYING FISH July 17/09

SOLD “FREE WILLIE” and LEO NAUGLER BIRDHOUSE July17/09

The first picture is of Leo Naugler’s “Flying Fish” – this is a large carving which will be extremely expensive to ship as it will need careful and well padded packing to ensure no damage occurs – perhaps this is better as a pick up! There is a stable crack along one side of the body due to drying and curing of the wood. This does not affect the integrity or strength of the piece.
The next picture is of David Stephens “Beach Flowers” an impressionistic and exciting folk art painting.

Third picture is of an an embroidered, beaded and appliqued wallhanging on green blanket/duffle cloth by Mary Tookomee. This form of art has been a longstanding decorative form used on duffle coats/parkas and parka covers for generations by Inuit women, and more recently wallhangings have also been made. This piece is exquisite. Sednas are a recurring theme in Inuit art and folklore.

The fourth picture shows three significant pieces currently in my collection: a Tom Rector bird tree; Free Willie, a beautiful polychromed carving by Jean-Marc Poirier; and Leo Naugler’s fun and funky birdhouse.
