The Beaver Lodge

A private grant to the Coeur d'Alene Public Library made possible this beaver lodge and companion mural of a dreamlike forest with wildlife. Allen and Mary Dee created this piece for children to enjoy while reading beneath the sticks and logs of the lodge. The mural is approximately fifty feet in length and about nine feet tall. The lodge is constructed of pine and fir, carved and painted to coordinate with the mural. beaver-lodge2.jpg

Ketchum Community Library Totem

A piece commissioned by the Pearson family, this totem entitled "Ancient Tales" now resides in the childrens section of the wonderful Ketchum Community Library. Carved and constructed of pine and fir, it represents a jungle ruin and some of the wildlife therein. Monkeys frolic, a panther peers out and birds of all types populate the place. At the base of the totem is a jaguar head whose open mouth is a playspace for small kids. The whole is painted by Mary Dee in vibrant acrylic colors.
