Description:
This beaver wall hanging consists of a beaver pelt laid flat in the middle of a wooden hoop and attached to the hoop with leather straps. Feet and a tail have been added with additional pieces of leather and embellished with beadwork. The eyes have been added with beading as well. The wall hanging has a large strip of leather with two holes at the top so that it may be hung from the wall.

There is a white price tag still adhered to the back of the pelt showing that it was originally sold at the Zone Hospital in Sioux Lookout, and that it was made by Alice Kakegumick of Sandylake, Ontario.
