Box

Blue oval box from the Iroquoian culture. The wall is made of a thin (5mm) sheet of wood, folded on itself to give an oval shape. The two ends of the sheet overlap and are sewn together with two parallel, vertical rows of fine cordage on one end and spruce roots on the other. The lid and wall are joined to the base with square-headed nails. Evidence of planing blows on the walls, base and lid.
