Carvings In The Canada Library of Parliament

LoP 02

© Library of Par­lia­ment

The Cana­da Library of Par­lia­ment is a Goth­ic Revival build­ing on a bluff over­look­ing the Ottawa Riv­er.  The build­ing, opened in 1876, has a rough exte­ri­or of Nepean sand­stone with mas­sive fly­ing but­tress­es.   The inte­ri­or is a con­trast­ing mix of col­or and tex­tures, high­light­ed by hand-carved white pine pan­els fea­tur­ing myth­i­cal beasts, masks, flow­ers and more.

Typ­i­cal­ly, vis­i­tors to the Library are allowed only a short dis­tance into the main read­ing room, and are not per­mit­ted to take pho­tos.  Sev­er­al years ago Don But­ler was able to secure a tour with per­mis­sion to take as many pho­tos as he desired.   But­ler notes that there are eight door­ways, each with 10 large carv­ings, 4 medi­um carv­ing and 6 small­er carv­ing for a total of 160 carved medal­lions.  In addi­tion, there are false post tops and small rosettes in the cor­ner of some pan­els.  The library his­to­ri­an esti­mat­ed there were some 4,500 of these small­er carv­ings in total.

In this first gallery, we are hap­py to present a taste­ful selec­tion of the medal­lions, as well as sev­er­al of the larg­er pan­els.  To vis­it the gallery click HERE.  More of Butler’s pho­tos will be pre­sent­ed in future gal­leries.

International Woodcarvers Congress 2015 Winner Galleries

Rick Harney's Best of Show winner at the 2015 International Woodcarvers Congress.

Rick Harney’s Best of Show win­ner at the 2015 Inter­na­tion­al Wood­carvers Con­gress.

Assem­bling the pho­to gallery for the Inter­na­tion­al Wood­carv­er Con­gress Win­ners has always been the great­est amount of work of any sin­gle arti­cle in WOM, but I know I’ll be work­ing with great pho­tos of great carv­ings.  The 2015 IWC Gallery was no excep­tion, start­ing with Rick Harney’s Best of Show win­ner.   This edi­tion has some 296 pho­tos (twice that num­ber if you count the thumb­nails) includ­ing some of the best carv­ings you will see any­where.  In the win­ner gal­leries you’ll find 162 of pho­tog­ra­ph­er Marc Feath­er­ly’s excel­lent stu­dio pho­tos of the win­ners at IWC 2015, includ­ing more pho­tos of the Best of Show win­ner.

In addi­tion to the gallery of the prize-win­ning carv­ings, you’ll also find Marc’s can­did pho­tos from the Class­es, Award Ban­quet, the Judges, the Show floor, and oth­er pho­tos around and about dur­ing Con­gress.

As always, the pho­tos in the winner’s gallery are click­able, and will take you to much larg­er ver­sions of these great carv­ings.  (Much larg­er then you’ll see in any paper pub­li­ca­tion.)  The large pho­tos will afford you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to real­ly look at the win­ners in detail.

To vis­it the gal­leries, in the menu bar above click on WOM, then on The Gal­leries menu item, or click HERE.   Enjoy!
