In September 2005, I travelled to the George River in Nunavik (northern Quebec) with a team of seven intrepid paddlers. Among them were AFC artists Rob Mullen and Lindsey Foggett. The trip involved a 300-kilometer canoe paddling marathon to the Arctic Ocean over two weeks—through the domain of the world’s largest caribou herd. The river snaked north in a flip-flopping transition between boreal and tundra biomes. Its barren ruggedness was something to behold and provided us with some extraordinary wildlife viewing opportunities. On our third day, a powerful squall forced us to battle our way to shore for shelter, pinning us to a barely adequate campsite for two days. We later learned the storm was the angry remnants of Hurricane Katrina. The morning the sky cleared, we heard the cry of a Peregrine Falcon and as I emerged from my tent, I was treated to an up-close high-speed fly-by from this magnificent bird. Continuously calling, it landed on an outcrop on the surrounding hills. This sculpture, created to capture the power, resiliency and majesty of this extraordinary predator, pays tribute to that moment.
