(3rd Place – Multicultural Art)
School: Petersburg High School
My inspiration behind this piece is growing up in a town lacking my own culture. The paddle represents the eagle clan with an eagle feather that flows in the wind and a deer antler that makes an amazing sound when it hits the paddle. I also placed a piece of copper in the handle to make it stand out and catch the eye of people looking at it. For this paddle it wanted it to represent and portray who I am and what I stand for.
