Lavvu Dream
Show: AWOL Gallery (Aug. 20 - Sept. 5, 2010)

The dream – a time for the soul to move as a spirit or breath of wind - fly over the treetops and even move mountains.

The Lavvu is a traditional Saami tent. Saami still use them today at festivals, camping, and when they need to go to tend reindeer herds (e.g., calf ear marking time in the mountains during early summer).
