Smiling Alien
by Ray Swinemar


Description: 33"x9"x12", spruce gall carving, carved and painted and signed with his name and his P.O.W. number 93610. Captured and detained in a German prison camp for four years ('41-'45) this Canadian sailor began to carve roots and sticks with a butter knife while in carceration. The Art of Nova Scotia Art purchased most of his caved canes for their permanent collection. Ray passed away in 2003.
