Sami culture

Well here is my final spread for the Culture AB round robin with the Altered Art Europe group. It has been quite enlightening, researching & learning a little about each culture throughout this project.
For Maria's book I was thinking snow....hence all the white layered gesso & tissue, which you can't really see here as white never scans brilliantly, I also added Sami symbols & a transparency depicting a Sami family circa 1800 & finished off the edges with some red fibre & ink.

Now it's just a matter of waiting for my Native American book to return home filled with lots of great artwork from the other girls.
