Selknam Magic Stone with Crab
Hand-painted stone, crab-leg, leather, grommets, thread, acrylic paints, wood.
5" x 3" x 2.5"
This stone is inspired by the Selknam women's chore to collect mollusks and small marine animals by the shore. These gatherings were part of their regular food along with the hunting of "guanacos" [related to llamas] by the Selknam male hunters.
