February 16th – 22nd

Llama on the Lamb...

Week twenty-six…

Regal and Majestic: the New England Llama (llamaxous misplacedious) eats his lunch of grass with a grace that is reserved for nobility.  The N.E. Llama was hunted to near extinction in the mid 1800’s.  The Narragansett Indians held this animal in a reverence like the plains Indians worshiped the great turtle.  Then the white man came and Llama fur was the new mink.  A little known U.S. historic fact: Washington was wearing a Llama jacket when crossed the Delaware River on that cold December night.  Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze, in his famous painting did not depict our Founding Father in his favorite Llama skin jacket for E.G. Leutze was one of the original animal rights activists in our country.

In other historical facts, I am half way through this project!  I spent the day yesterday driving around trying to find something that would signify the middle of the island and thus the middle of my project but it was to no avail and was about to call it quits when I said…one more road and then…our friend the Llamaxous Misplacedious.  This Llama was in some random front yard out in Portsmouth.  I framed the above photo to have it look like it was in an open field.

Whats that?  You don’t believe me?  fine…

Ha!  Enjoy the week and thank you to everyone who has supported me in this project!  We’re halfway home!
