|Reece drew quite an assortment of objects, |
including a dagger (w/snake) and lyre-bird
feathers (the V&A would be jealous).
|Maria's pieces run the gamut from the Taj |
Mahal broach and beaded staff in the photo
(below) to basket trays (foreground above) and
a beautifully-woven ivory-handled fan I've
admired for a long while.
|Among the objects drawn by Cristian is a|
lauhala mat. It is probably the most fragile
and desiccated piece in the collection.
|Abby examines a ceramic pipe bowl.|
She also drew a natural history specimen:
throat teeth from some fish species that
must be native to the South Seas/Samoa.
|Mallory with a bamboo-handled spear, a |
folding (souvenir) sun shade, and
two clubs (see below).
|Can you read the lettering? I was surprised to |
discover its provenience (but it makes sense
given what we know about Mrs. Beardlsey).
|Seya inspects an artifact she'll be researching: |
a tiny metal dagger and scabbard. The piece

|Nathan drew four objects, one of which I am|

and I will let him figure that out after her
