In 2014 I participated in an exhibition centred on the theme of caribou. Caribou have a special place in the heritage Newfoundland and Labrador. I wished to depict a little known part of the life history of caribou.. when the velvet is shed from their antlers. At this time many blood vessels remain exposed and give a very red appearance to the antler. This gradually fades to the bone like substance with which we are familiar. I have also always wondered how animals react at night to a star filled sky, so that is where I put this animal.
