Quebec Month / Installment 7
I have some other Montreal wall art still to share, but, at the moment, I’ve singled out the above piece because of the unusual medium — painted cardboard — used by its creator. By the time I came upon this contemporary take on a traditional Pacific Northwest totem pole, the work had seen better days but it still held up quite well. The brightly colored eagle, beaver and cow (a modern update for a totem pole!) are set off nicely by the intricate carvings in the corrugated cardboard.
