Continuing on, here we have more First Peoples artifacts and items, especially snowshoes.
This carving, typical of the Far North, caught my eye.
The path led into an area more concentrated on archaeology, with artifacts beneath the floor, below glass panels. The Bluefish Caves is an archaeological site in the Yukon.
Spear points and other tools are displayed from a site in Nova Scotia, along with a depiction of what the area would have looked like at the end of the last Ice Age.
This drew my attention.
A Separate Reality was painted by the First Nations artist Norval Morrisseau betwen 1979-84.

Interesting. Imagine you told them people from all over the world will see it via blogs! Or such.ReplyDelete
It is a great exhibit, love the paintings and sculptures.
Have a great weekend!
What a rich life they had And we have degraded it almost beyond recognition. Now they can eat pizza while watching porn. White man's progress, huh?ReplyDelete
...they had complex societies which many still don't understand today.ReplyDelete
Gostei do que vi.ReplyDelete
