The North Dakota Council on the Arts (NDCA) announces their twelfth annual Special Edition Ornament.

Rick and Connie Whittier of Lidgerwood, ND, were commissioned by NDCA to create one-of-a-kind functional spear fishing decoy holiday ornaments.

The limited-edition decoy ornaments are hand-carved and individually painted, one at a time by Rick. These three hyper-realistic species have hooks for use as a tree ornament and make wonderful gifts or decor for fish enthusiasts of all kinds! Display stands are also available. Each fish (4.5-5.5" in length) is numbered and signed by the artist.

  • Each ornament sells for $40.00 which includes gift box, tax, shipping and handling
  • Trio Set (one of each fish) sells for $105 which includes gift box, tax, shipping and handling (a savings of $15 over purchasing separately)
  • Display stands available for an additional $3.00
  • Sales are final, no refunds will be available
  • $15.00 of the purchase price of each ornament purchased can be used as a tax-deductible donation to the North Dakota Cultural Endowment Fund. The Fund was created by the State Legislature in 1979 to assist NDCA in providing artistic opportunities for citizens throughout the state.
