Etched birch bark basket with quillwork by Barry Dana, Penobscot
Beautifully designed and executed, this birch bark basket is by Barry Dana, an ex-chief of the Penobscot tribe and a respected guide, teacher, and lecturer.
Penobscot double curve design etched on the surface to expose the lighter bark below the surface; porcupine quills woven on the cover; sweetgrass braid around the edge. Stitched with spruce root.
