    Killer whale-birchbark
    [birch bark-a]


    V27xh15 cm (v11" xh 6") Ron Solanas has collected a clean, flexible, piece of bark from a mature white birch tree. The lenticles, or horizontal indentations, in the bark are spaced quite far apart, complimenting and not distracting from the striking image of a killer whale. There is the added feature of an eagle head portrayed in the whale's tail. The use of bright red for the sweeping segments of the body, with black featured in the erect dorsal and pectoral fins, enhances the impact of the piece. Birch bark has chemicals that naturally are anti-fungicidal, it is long-lasting and is a very strong material, even if thin (think of birch bark canoes and birch bark cooking utensils used by Aboriginal peoples). Use your imagination in framing for a beautiful, fascinating work of Indian Art From The Edge.
