Gingerbread Totem

Outdoor found object sculpture, ~ 8' x 4', was installed at Arbor Gallery/Centre for Contemporary Art in Vankleek Hill, Ontario, Aug. 2011 to October 2012. Vankleek Hill proclaims that it is the 'Gingerbread Capital of Ontario' - referring to the fancy wooden trim on many of its houses - so it seemed appropriate to pay homage somehow.
