Bearing Gifts We Traversed A Far! - NK003

 

Product Code: NK003
The Christian stories of my childhood were replete with camels and kings with crowns and brightly coloured robes. If the star shining in the East had appeared to the Ojibwa it would have been the elders, both men and women who would have journeyed bearing gifts to Manitou. The Great Mystery.

Hark! The Herald Angel Sings! - NK001

 

Product Code: NK001
If the Christian message had been delivered to the Ojibwa rather than the desert dwellers, I think the messenger would have appeared in a form that the viewers could comprehend. Here an announcement is being delivered by a Thunderbird.

Kokopelli – NK009

 

Product Code: NK009
I’m borrowing images from my south-western cousins - there were no kokapelli images on the rocks north of Lake Superior. But I like the bright colours and the idea of communal dancing with the spirits.

O Little Town of Bethlehem – NK007

 

Product Code: NK007
If the Christian story had been delivered to this continent, perhaps the imagery we associate with the Christmas season would be the Inukshuk marking and standing guard over the birth place of the new leader of men.

Page and Monarch Forth They Went – NK002

 

Product Code: NK002
Altruism exists in all humanity, not just in the heart of the good king Wenceslas. Here we have an Ojibwa father and son delivering provisions to someone less capable.

Peace – NK005

 

Product Code: NK005
On a starry night 2000 years ago, a soft blanket of snow covered the land. Secure and warm, a mother gave birth and there was peace on earth.

The Bear – NK010

 

Product Code: NK010
When my family moved close to town so that I could go to school my mother discovered that she had a passion for making costumes...for Halloween parties at school and for the big Christmas skating carnival. She read somewhere that the British Grenadiers guarding Buckingham Palace wore bear fur busbies. The result was my dad shot a bear, I won first prize (a quarter!) with my Grenadier costume, and my mother made us eat bear meat for half the winter. I hate bear meat.

The Moose – NK008

 

Product Code: NK008
A source of food and clothing for my family. In the Fall, my Mom would spend a week tanning the hide and many more weeks making winter boots for us. Some of the meat was dried...a form of jerky...and what we couldn't eat right away was shared with neighbours.

The Stockings were Hung … - NK004

 

Product Code: NK004
Our stockings weren't hung by the chimney with care. Instead, our moccasins were hung from a nail near the back door. Each of use received a bit of candy, and a home made gift...a stuffed doll or a whistle.

We Three Kings – NK006

 

Product Code: NK006
Magi, camels and desert are the usual images that spring to mind at Christmas when the airwaves are full of traditional carols, but there are other points of view aren't there? This is a distinctly Canadian version of this popular Christmas carol. Polar bears are very much the kings of the north and they are about to visit and pay homage to the new life born under the star.
