I think this is an exceptional piece by a highly regarded, but rarely seen or documented Newfoundland folk artist, John Sharpe. This piece is signed and dated 1986 on the bottom (see attachment 6). Painted and carved wood, metal, leather and string. He uses what appears to be wood putty or a sawdust glue mixture to form the hair. In attachment 5 you can see the logger's axe. 29" long, 8" wide, 12 1/2" tall.

In the frame it measures 19 1/2" square. Nicely mounted in a shadowbox style frame. Excellent condition.
This elaborate and crazy fantasy cruise ship was created by someone named Phillipe (no last name), as a gift, or perhaps an invitation to go on a cruise to the lady who was obviously the focus of his affections named Rita. Enclosed on a little map of Baffin Island it says Rita Je T'aime, which means Rita, I love you (shown in attachment 7). It is dated 1987. This is one of those you have to see it to believe it pieces. It has a wonderfully detailed interior complete with sitting rooms, furnishings, a grand piano etc. Made from Plexiglas, wood, metal, nylon rope, and found objects. The boat sits on a stand complete with, carved lion's heads, ship's wheel and kitty perch. All I can say is that I hope that she went with him after seeing such a creation of devotion. The boat itself is 34" tall. It stands 63" tall on the stand. 44" long, 16" deep
