Still More Wahoo


A lawn ornament in Bath, Maine. Wow. A little trouble with the foreshortening on the left leg, but gamely offered, that's for sure. This fellow's Indian marker has been placed in the interstitial zone between the traditional territories of the Abenaki and Penobscot tribes in Maine. Photographed by Jeff Pike, who sent it to me from his vacation.


Above, an image of a Penobscot wigwam, an Algonquin form (the former [along with the Abenaki] a subset of the latter). I do not know the context of the photograph. A negotiation?

Sportswriters in Cleveland used to refer to the Indians front office as "the Wigwam."
