Canje Pheasant

One of ten greetings cards of different Amerindian imagery, in plastic wrapping with an envelope. The card has a picture of a brown bird with red and brown wings and a small crest. The bird's wings are spread, and it is perching on one of two overlapping thick green branches, holding a sprig of four leaves and a bunch of berries in its beak.
To the bottom centre of the picture are the artist's initials and date in the form of @ and '01. There is a red band along the front bottom edge of the card. The card is made of cream-coloured, lightly ridged, thick paper with rough edges, folded in half along a horizontal axis with a picture on the front. The envelope is also cream coloured and both are sealed in a plastic bag or sleeve. On the back of the card, ''Canje Pheasant' Correia Guyana 2002' is printed or written.
