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.
