Stunning Steve Cayard Canoe

DarelGabriel has uploaded a bunch of photos on his Flickr page showing off a stunning Wabanaki style birchbark canoe made by Steve Cayard. The winter bark etching is just beautiful! Etching out this negative image from the whole hull must have taken a very long time.

If I'm not mistaken, Darel is the brother of another well known Passamaquoddy bark canoe builder, David Bridges and who's got a fantastic album on his page documenting his gorgeous canoes. My boat looks extremely crude and very fragile compared to these canoes, which really show the beauty and workmanship of bark canoe construction at its finest.
