friday robots

Fridays in December in Portland tend to be low-key. We do get a little daylight, but clouds tend to cover that much of the time. This is why Friday Robots, seen here in our very own Japanese Garden, are all the more important this time of year.

Like last week, these robots are drawn from the book The Rock Art of Arizona, by Ekkehart Malotki. I don’t know if Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest ever drew on rocks, but I’m guessing that if they had, the rain would have washed the drawings away after a few seasons. Totem poles, carved from big northwestern trees, were probably a better bet.friday-robots-12-10-10
