Seal fur pouch

Seal fur pouch

Elizabeth Perry (Aquinnah Wampanoag) and Lalla Williams (Sugpiaq) worked together to create this pouch made of seal fur, brain-tanned moose hide, lamb's wool, woven sea otter fur, plucked fur seal pelt, wampum (quahog shell), deerskin, hemp, and simulated animal sinew during the 2005 ECHO (Education through Cultural and Historical Organizations) Artist Exchange hosted by the Peabody Essex Museum. copyright © Dan Gair
