Visiting Bruun Idun

We met along the beach in Lincoln Park in West Seattle on Saturday morning. It's the first time I've ever been there. I went because I wanted to me the newly installed troll, Bruun Idun.

She is about 20 feet tall and plays a whale-shaped flute to call the Orca. Hair is made of a Madrone branches, saved from a tree that had to be removed. Here is the artist's YouTube about making her.

John “Coyote” Halliday, a Muckleshoot Tribe artist who is contributing decorations to the troll, made primarily from bark and shells. Her ear rings are small sections of beech branches. People have left offerings of shells and other items.

I sketched a large side view.

Since there was still some time left, I sketched a smaller close up from the other side so as to better see the flute.
