'Shaman Scroll' ~ artist book
Two decades ago when I was studying shamanism as well as working in the field of book arts, I created several so called ‘artist books’ for galleries and international exhibitions, often also as commissions. In Lapland regions, reindeer are farmed for food, and with this artist book I wished to honour the Spirit of Reindeer in gratitude. The scroll features ink drawings inspired by the traditional drums of the Sami people. This is over a metre long scroll that includes four 'worlds' along the parchment. The scroll can be held open with the two Flint stones. The materials are reindeer parchment and fur, pewter and silk satin. A unique collector item for those interested in shamanism or book art
Total length of scroll when closed 22 cm (8.5")
Length of parchment from top edge to bottom edge 15 cm (6")
Length of parchment scroll when open 103 cm (40")

This set comes in a beige tone crocheted drawstring pouch, and of course gift-wrapped.
