4 1/4" x 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Red and yellow cedar, liquid lipstick.

"It is painted entirely using long wear liquid lipstick, and is called "Lipstick Carver". The box considers gender in Northwest Coast Art. For a long time, the long-held belief was that women didn't carve. Through research of the Tlingit language, I have found several examples of female carvers - a meteorite dagger and a carved bowl that are now held in museum collections. So yes, women can do our art, and do it well, and do it all while wearing lipstick, too."
