Man's Apron, leggings, moccasins

Artwork Image

By: Loretta R. Webster

This is part of an outfit that you can find in this section.  The edging is an old Iroquois design that has been used by porcupine quill workers and beaders for centuries.  It unfolds several images from the Creation Story, such as the row of sky domes above a straight line designating the earth; three sisters (corn, beans, squash) on the earth line & under the sky domes; the night sun (moon) above the sky domes with celestial trees on either side. Everything has black wool as the base material.

The moccasins are made of elk skin, with the black velvet used as the base material for the beadwork.  On the cuffs you can see part of the Iroquois Confederacy Wampum Belt which denotes the unification of five nations (Oneida, Mohawk, Onondaga, Seneca, Cayuga) under one government.

Price: $sold
