Deer leather bag with flap willow
The Deer represents grace, beauty, strength and new growth.
Copper is for healing.
To honor the animal, I use all parts including the drag marks and wholes.
The deer was taken for food and I believe it is disrespectful to waste any part of the remains, even if they are not 'perfect'.
I value imperfections as that is what distinguishes the individual and tells a story.
