"The hides of the Native American Whitetail deers that live along the border of Mexico and USA were historically used by native Indians to paint daily events on from ceremonies to life and death. Wood has used this method to topographically map the border area in gold oil paint onto a number of skins to document the migrant trails and migrant deaths of the last year." - Upstream
