I have been contacted by a young lad who has come into possession of a rather different model canoe which I have not seen before. I thought I'd post a few pics here, and ask for thoughts as to where it might originate, what cultural influences might underlie its creation. Size: 48" long, 10" wide, about 7" deep amidships. Stand is 18" tall; oars/paddles are 22" in length. Is it carved, or possibly molded? Why the suggestion of random stitching across the hull? I rather suspect it's a 'representative', somewhat 'artistic' rendition or amalgam of primitive canoe features, possibly mass-produced or studio-made as a large, decorative piece of home furnishing. I'm told that the stand is quite heavy, and possibly made of cast iron. If it had an oval-shaped glass top, could it be an interesting canoe-themed coffee table? Strikes me, too, that it has influences that are not necessarily North American. Your thoughts, comments, suggestions are welcomed.
