About This Artwork: This is a sort of hieroglyph of the peoples that live in the Arctic circle. In the Saami language, "gabba" is the word for a light-haired or white reindeer. The Saami are ancient herders of reindeer and the original fore-bearers of Thor. I'm loosely related to them. This piece is framed.
