The dragon-like creatures are interesting, Tom. One doesn't think of dragons in the New World
Tom Wilson: From a brief search I think they may be lizards.
Looks like something to ward off evil
Tom Wilson: May be - I haven't been able quickly to find something on the iconography of native Canadian art.
The famous "Scream," Tom???
Tom Wilson: It may have been influenced by that smile

I love this kind of art, Tom. My brother sent me kalenders with Canadian Native art and I have a painting as well. There is something about it that I really like.
Tom Wilson: Quite fascinating isn't it?

Studying the design closely, it is clear that those first peoples knew something about graphic design.
Tom Wilson: Indeed they did!

That is a work of art, as they say.
Tom Wilson: I'll agree with that, Chad.
I like this style of art, Tom smile
