Work on the Coureur des bois has been continued steadily through the week. Now the Challenge is over I don't have to speed continuously from one stage to the next without a break.
Coureur des bois ( Runners of the woods) were French Canadian woodsman who travelled in New France and North America. They explored the vast woodlands to trade Various European goods for furs (mainly Beaver). Along the way they learned the practices of the Natives who lived there. They became skilled hunters and canoeists and fought against the English.
Here I present my Courer des bois element of the North Star box set, 6 figures in all. I have used a fairly wide pallet of colours to represent the wide variety of items and clothing they would have worn through there trading experiences.
