Banff March 21

I spent yesterday morning in the Whyte Museum, in Banff township. I was looking for artifacts in the museum's collection to work with. I am focusing on the equilateral triangle as a symbol and I found lots of examples in the current exhibition.
Beading on moccasins

A beaded choker. (nice Art Nouveau one in front of it)

Beaded repeating motif on hide leggings.

Great example of 2 ancient motifs used by many different cultures.
I am setting up a time for next week to go down to the basement of the Museum to study closely specific items I have asked the curators to pull for me.
