First and foremost, I admit I had put this off for a while, so I do not remember much.
While in Michigan, I visited the Eyaawing Cultural Center in Peshawbestown. A simple one story layout, the place contained artefacts and art created by members of various nations local to the state. Fashion, quilts, canoes, and weapons lay out in an almost circular organization. However, out of everything featured, I enjoyed the basket weaving exhibit the most. The spiky design of the baskets and the use of porcupine needles fascinated me to no end. When I went to another museum in another Michigan town, I saw baskets that had the same design. It intrigued me that basket weaving can go beyond the typical streamlined design.
Looking up with a forlorn gaze while an interestingly rendered skull stays at her feet.
Sculpture, classical and abstract, but always with a whimsical feel.
Lighthouses and ruins, oh my! I enjoyed looking at the architectural style of this island culture. Furthermore, I will also have black and white photographs of these soon.
Hey, now in Michigan and enjoying what the place has to offer. I love the warmth and welcome nature of the locals around here.
On future posts, I now have some written reports about the Dennos Museum that I will have ready hopefully by early next week. While I put it together, enjoy this some sculpture I found at a cemetery.
