When I found out the theme for the Cultural Heritage Festival was going to be Celebrating Women of the West Coast, I decided to research the “beginning” so to speak. TRIBUTE middle image.
This piece was created with the pioneer women in mind. Portraying some of the many tasks that women had to undertaken in order to create a life in the harsh coastal environment.
The images of the women displayed are women of the 1800’s. These are the women who paved the way for our women of today. Today we celebrate women, their achievements and their accomplishments, the ones who carry on tradition and the ones who are breaking new ground.
Women are a powerful force and united we continue to move forward.
This unique piece is created with resourced wood, leather lace and original fish net from a west coast fisherman!
