Minnesota artist, and a member of the Anishinabe from the Grand Portage Reservation, George Morrison, who for many years belonged to a circle of Abstract Expressionist painters in New York, explored the medium of sculpture using traditional materials. For this driftwood collage, he drew both the material and the imagery, with its subtle horizon line, from the shore of Lake Superior. in 1997, Morrison's work was featured in the Jacqueline Kennedy Sculpture Garden at the White House.
