Beautiful Birch Bark Container

Postby Robin Fawcett » Fri May 16, 2008 8:41 pm

Does anyone know who made this piece of outrageous crafstmanship ?

http://bp3.blogger.com/_fXtEFdqRbwo/SCtkla-pdoI/AAAAAAAAAsM/lAjydOkYxx8/s1600-h/Birch+bark+container+%28Large%29.jpg

It was in the Field Craft section at the BB last weekend and I can't remember
actually seeing it. I was so busy I forgot to vote in any of the competitions so didn't even vote for myself!

PS. Hugh - why can't I get the actual image to come up here rather than just a link? I think some kind of online masterclass in uploading images is called for.

I may be wrong but I think it may have been part of Stuart Kings collection and made in Russia. I can't imagine any of our members doing decoration with that sort of imagery.

Isn't it St George slaying the dragon?

St George

Postby Robin Fawcett » Sat May 17, 2008 10:48 am

I've just checked Wikipedia Mark and according to them......

"George was born to a Christian family during the late third century. His father was probably Armenian from Cappadocia and served as an officer of the Roman army. His mother was Jewish from Lydda, Iudaea (now Lod, Israel). She returned to her native city as a widow along with her young son, where she provided him with an education."

But we are getting slightly off the subject here :!:
