Playing Favourites: Jeremy D., July 17th 2012

17 Jul

Jeremy D., a MIA visitor with “Decorative Sealskin” (c.1940s) by an unknown artist, Canadian Arctic, sealskin, hide, fabric, fur, MIA Collection

Where are you from?

Thunderbay, ON

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

My wife is attending the Assembly of First Nations. Yes, my first visit.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I really like how the shapes and forms are made of with different coloured fur, and how you can see the natural spotted pattern of the fur.
