Viking Ship

Artist: Elijah Cole

I cut out cardboard boxes with scissors. I stuck papier-mache using old newspapers. I didn’t like it because my hands got sticky in the glue. I found a thistle stick for the mast. One time I went to get the eggs and I tore my pants on the fence, so I used the pants as the sail. I like that it still has a pocket. I painted the ship red which is my favourite colour. I used aluminium cans as cargo barrels. I used bottle caps as shields and an onion bag for a fishing net with cardboard fish. I used spoons from McDonalds as oars. I hope my ship stays shiny.
