If the exitement of Christmas day is hard to beat, the citizens of  Glenrock Pennsylvania do just that on Christmas Eve.  With a Christmas eve caroling tradition begun by 5 men in 1868, the citizens of the town have succeeded in caroling each and every year without fail for 143 years.  Singing prescribed old English carols they begin in the towns church on Christmas Eve and sing until the sun breaks the next day.  As they sing their way through the night, they are greeted by friends and family, libations and an unfaltering Yuletide Spirit.

Limited Edition Bronze Sculpture entitled “Hear the Drum” portrays the ceremonial winter dance of the Kwakiutl people of British Columbia’s west coast. This is their traditional boyhood to manhood ritual.  The dancer in the sculpture is one of the three sattelite transformative supernatural beings surrounding the boys who are becoming men.  When the winter ceremonial is taking place, the young boys or “initiates” are deep in the woods proving their worth. The mask design is based on the “Cannibal Raven” motif and is hand painted by the artist. The dancer wears ceremonial garb made of cedar, the sacred material.  This piece is mounted on a very beautiful piece of cedar burl wood.  Each piece’s base has unique characteristics as the bronze edition works its way through this very special supply of old wood.  “Hear the Drum” stands 18″ tall. The edition is limited to 60. Purchase of sculpture includes fascinating book written by a scholar in the field who explains this mysterious secret society and sheds some light on the cannibalism controversy.  Inquire for more details.
