Great Lakes Quilled Bag by Eli Motsay

This bag is based on a specimen formerly in the Speyer collection and is now in the Canadian Museum of Civilization. The only change I've made is in the suspension of the cones. I've employed the use of imitation wampum (original is quill wrapped thongs, although most of them are now missing) a fairly common commodity in the Northeast and Great Lakes in the last half of the 18th Century.
