Each sculpture is an original and so marked. The 1/1signature, indicating one only.

Works are sculpted from porcelain and fired between 2000 and 2300 degrees.
The brilliant colours and fabric textures are achieved by various combinations of stain,
chalks and translucents for a permanent finish and soft patina.

Each sculpture represents an historical moment and/or an aspect of
culture or custom. Clothing is such as would be worn during the activity
represented as well as according to the tribe involved.

Such detail is gleaned from libraries, museums and archives.
In more recent years, writings by Indian people themselves
has provided some of the information.

The artist Duhamel desires not only to create a sculpture of beauty and interest,
but also to leave an authentic, pictorial record of the Aboriginal peoples of North America.
