Beothuk Reproductions


I'm pulling together a set of Beothuk reproductions for a very patient client right now.  I hope to get it delivered in the next day or two.

It's kind of a fun mix of finished pieces and examples of raw materials.  By including materials with an European origin, like copper, iron nails, and pipe stems alongside the caribou bone, shell, red ochre, and chert gives the whole set a very post-contact feel.  It's 100% Beothuk - you wouldn't confuse a collection like with a pre-Contact Little Passage assemblage, or any other culture in the Province, for that matter.
