Flower attached to the gourd is a Sunflower Pod, and I have also attached a row of Long-Leaf Pine Needles, as well as Gourd Seeds and Turquoise Beads

  I have decorated this gourd bowl by painting a line drawing of a Buffalo, using a 00-script-liner brush and black paint.  This proud, strong fellow is painted against the natural color of the gourd, and the rest of the gourd is dyed green.

The rim of the gourd has been covered with two Philodendron Sheaths and has Gourd Seeds and Turquoise Beads sewn below.  An Old Stone Arrowhead is suspended from a strand of Turquoise Beads.  We are told that this arrowhead is at least 1,000 years old, based on the manner in which it was made.

Natural colored raffia has been wrapped around the rim with glass beads and a heart pod attached.

  I first painted an Olde World Globe on a gourd in the 1980's, and it has since been a favorite design of mine.  The basic outlines of the continents are painted, along with the longitudinal and latitudinal lines.  My favorite motto, first penned by William Ernest Henley (1849-1903), is painted inside the compass rose:  "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul."

Land masses, great seas, and oceans are all whimsically named by me.  The waters west of Japan are known as "Seas of the Dragon"; the Caribbean Islands are here called "Angell Isles"; the Atlantic Ocean has been renamed "The Sea of Great Hopes", with a Tall Ship carrying her valiant passengers to the "Shores of Freedom", and all this is under the white stars of The Northern Lights.

So go the follies of my mind, and I hope you will enjoy this rendition of an Olde World Globe.
