Gateway to Labrador

These photos are from the Gateway to Labrador Visitor Centre in L'Anse au Clair.  The Centre's goal is to introduce visitors to all of the different people who lived in Labrador over the past 9000 years.  For conservation and security reasons, they chose not to use artifacts in the displays.  All of the objects in the display panels are artifact reproductions that I made for the Centre in 2006.  Highlights for me were the Palaeoeskimo bear head and all of the ivory pieces from the 7500 year old L'Anse Amour burial.
