    I think this goes well with the first one in the series. This one makes me think of a mask, a mix of hard and softer parts like plastic and cloth.

    Thank you Dave, I see the head like structure and the play of hard and soft
    does evoke a masklike impression. That gives me food for thought on the next one....

    Thunderbird has been fooling around with a hawk and they produced an egg or two. Very like a spirit animal or totem animal. Pacific Northwest and all, although I don't know if they would like a non-tribe member going there. But the paintings are very different from native art and their pantheon. But how could one living up there not have a though in that direction occasionally.

    I really like the intensity of this one.

    thanks D Akey, I have always loved the Pacific Northwest native-american art carved in cedar and painted in flat colors - very stunning work and very inspirational
