Canoe and paddle building dates back thousands of years. It's remarkable to see how little has changed over millennia in the design and profiles of both. You don't have to be an avid boater to instantly recognize their distinctive shapes from afar. Whether you are a canoeist or not, images like these can conjure up a connection to the past or pique your interest in cottage related themes.
The artist was inspired by the evolution of canoe and paddle design and how it's been almost glacial-like... it's hard to perfect perfection. With so little change in the basic designs over time, craftsmen turned to new materials and modifications to profiles as a way of customizing and perfecting their work. This print was inspired by the evolution of design and materials that the artist has witnessed and some of his favorites in both canoe and paddle design.
If you love the look of canoes and paddles, this print is for you. It makes a great addition to any cottage or home decor.
