Very beautiful. I am a big supporter of saving the harp seal. This work is absolutely amazing. To me this image portrays the innocence of such a beautiful animal. I see the woman protecting them. Very well done. Bravo to you. Hugs...Pam

I know this will sound like I'm complaining but I have to say I think it's kind of funny that you used an indian girl who is wearing leather and rabbit or fox fur but yet trying to protect the baby seals.

But on the other hand, I realize long ago there was a need to keep warm and that is why they used animals in such a way. But today, there is no excuse for killing animals for fur coats/jackets/etc.

But I love your work and the touching scene here, brought a tear to my eye.

Thank you Lori!! And I totally understand your comment. I did struggle with the choice on whether or not to add those details, as I am a total advocate for animal rights and do not tolerate animal cruelty in any way. That being said, I sincerely wanted to show the harmony and tenderness that can exist in this dynamic, and very much wanted to have that represented by a woman signifying the culture. Being raised in an area whose roots are deeply entrenched in Native American history, I have grown up with a respect of the balance they once had to strike here, with their interactions with the animals (like you pointed out). I like to think this girl is from that time. :)

And if she is from this current time, then she's wearing faux. :D :D :hug:

Oh I am so glad you understand, I was hoping I wasn't sounding mean or critical. And if she is from this time, then I'm glad it's faux :D :hug:
