Artwork Description:

This crescent shaped gorget has the Double Turkey motif carved in the smooth concave side of a melon shell. The mirror image of a bird or animal standing on crossed bars was a common motif of the southeastern Mvskoke people. The deep incised lines create shadows and the minute crosshatching on the tail feathers creates a value change. The cutout spaces further define the birds and create more depth to the negative space. The necklace is made of melon and darker shell beads.
