Early Eskimo Originals - McDaniel Art for Day #156 of 365 Days of Art

The caribou feeds the wolf, but it is the wolf who keeps the caribou strong.

Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.

Don't let the windows of your home be so small that the light of the sun cannot enter your rooms.

May you have warmth in your igloo, oil in your lamp, and peace in your heart.

Summer is the season of inferior sledding.

Unless you're the lead sled dog, the view is pretty much the same.

Glorious it is when wandering time is come.

May your charity increase as much as your wealth.

You never really know your friends from your enemies until the ice breaks.

Those who know how to play can easily leap over the adversaries of life. And one who knows how to sing and laugh never brews mischief.

The art featured here are images taken from placemats.  
A series of McDaniel originals were made into placemats and I believe there were 4 or 5 different sets available for purchase. (Possibly sold around 1971)
