Nancy Luce's Chickens
Photo of Print
 The menagerie of miscellaneous chicken figurines left by present-day admirers at Nancy Luce's grave on Dead Man's Curve in West Tisbury are a living testament to the hold this remarkable lady still has on our imaginations. In her poems, Ms. Luce made it clear that each of her chickens was at least as distinct and complicated as any person she'd met, and that she preferred the company of the former. This linoleum-block print is a graphic expression of the individuality of Nancy's feathered friends, for whom she coined remarkable original names like Teeddla Toonna, Lebootie Ticktuzy and, of course, Levendy Ludandy.
