http://www.stoningtongallery.com/images/season_icon.gif (Click on the pic) It's some very cool Native American-styled painted sculpture by Jean Ferrier, "Dark Matter of the Universe" (red cedar, acrylic;

19" x 2" x 63"h, $5,200. I won't be buying it any time soon...) from the collection at the Stonington Gallery. (It's also my first attempt at an off-Forum avatar image, as I fiddle around and figure out how to do some of these things.) I originally came across this when doing searches for things related to various writers in Guitar Player magazine, and one of the artists represented at the Stonington Gallery- a particularly gifted artist and craftsman, I might add- was also named Art Thompson.

Now I want to find stuff rooted in Iroquois/Six Nations/Northeastern Native American traditions and culture, as I live here.

Ask yourself- What Would Ren and Stimpy Do?

The art of the Haida and Tlingit (pronounced "klinkit") cultures is fascinating. I had the good fortune to visit the Totem Museum in Ketchikan, Alaska. WOW. Cool stuff. I remember being a very young child and being awed by the totem poles at the Smithsonian.


Good design for a guitar! A totem guitar!!! Wow...good idea, Caveman!
