Child's Mantle

This signature piece of the 2005 Peabody Essex Museum ECHO (Education through Cultural and Historical Organizations) Artist Exchange combines red cedar, hibiscus fiber, cornhusks, feathers, sea otter fur and hemp to produce a work of art representing all three artists' regions: Massachusetts (Elizabeth Perry, Aquinnah Wampanoag), Alaska (Lalla Williams, Sugpiaq), and Hawai`i (Audrey Wagner and Marques Marzan). copyright © Dan Gair
