WINGS OF WOOD - The Art of Creole Wood Carvers
Creole wood carvers in New Orleans have been creating works of art for centuries. Their duck decoys are regarded as treasures by collectors. This video documentary presents an in-depth look at the work of the Hutchison family: Charles, Rudolph and Eric Hutchison. Their innovative decorative carvings and realistic sculptures in wood speak to the refined levels of creativity that have emerged from the Creole culture of New Orleans. Old videotape footage of the great Mitchel Lafrance is included along with the works of other Creole wood carvers.
