Rogan Birchbark Etched Leaves
Birchbark Rogan Container with Etched LeavesThis Etched Birchbark Rogan comes with a Cover. The artist etched botanical designs on the back of the Birchbark while it was still green. As it dried, the image darkened. The artist used spruce root to hold it together. He stitched together two pieces of Birchbark for the cover. The cover is very sturdy and you can take it completely off the container. The artist etched a lined design on the top of it. A piece of Braintanned Deerskin Leather Lacing serves as a carrying handle.
Birchbark containers are traditional containers made from the bark of birch trees. They are typically used by Indigenous people in North America for storing and transporting food, clothing, and other items. This Rogan stands 6.5″ tall. The bottom measures 6.5″ x 5.5″. The cover measures 6.25″ x 5.5″. We got this Rogan from a collection. It will make a lovely display piece! One of a Kind!
