I like that a lot.

It would have to be yard art, but still very nice.

Pictures don't really do these sculptures justice.
Something that size will put you back around 8-10K.
The small one I snagged was priced a bit more reasonably

We have a few hand me downs, but I would call myself a collector.

I love that one you own but it doesn't say Loon to me. I have a great fondness for loons.

Years ago I encountered the work of Benjamin Chee Chee, a Pacific NW Indian artist. He committed suicide but left behind a lovely body of work.

Those are cool, it's a shame he's no longer with us.

Very cool.

I'd seen some of that work before but never managed to put a name to the art.

I just learned something new.

Merci!

Me too, I was wrong about his Pacific NW ties. I read about him in a kwakuitle <sp?> site years ago and assumed.......

He was an Ojibway from Ontario and hung himself in an Ottawa jail. He'd just delivered 17 works and was celebrating too loudly so they tossed him in a cell overnight. It went badly.
