Additional Details

Often covered in reflective surfaces so that they simultaneously mirror and blend in with the natural world. Doug Coffin’s majestic, modernist totem poles essentialize traditional forms as geometric abstractions, merging the ancient and modern worlds. This in turn, may well reflect his upbringing as a member of the Potawatomi nation in a world that revolves several removes from Potawotomi tradition. This lot is illustrated in The Story of Leanin’ Tree on page 468. A copy of the book will accompany this lot
