sorry but i don't think it is ugly
i have a picture of it in one of my books which i copied and pinned up

to me it looked rather like a lion trying to look important - i found it a bit amusing
not sure what is going on under the head

i rather like "primitive" and "native" art

that it is outside of the men's lodge
reminds me of the things the Moose and Elk and other men's clubs here put in their club rooms lol
not as artistic

For the purposes of the weekly photograph theme I'm counting it as "ugly", but I must admit, it does look almost cute. But it wasn't supposed to. Looking at it with modern western eyes, it's quaint or amusing or cute, but the caption in the display case said that the hut would have been surrounded by many of these carvings and they were supposed to be terrifying. I wonder what happened to strip it of its terror these days?
