Voo Doo
Gift of Burl Willes and Photos by Biron (Lionel A. Biron)

The title and theme of this jacket is Voo Doo. The front is made of skin with the hide still attached, brown. Either side is decorated with wire wrapped shapes, images, beads and feathers. The back and the sleeves are made of blue striped fabric. The multi-colored stripes (separating the blue stripes) are cut and used as "frames" for images on the sleeves, which are covered in clear plastic. A pair of chicken feet decorate either sleeve. Brighted colored printed fabric (made to resemble batik) in red, orange color, green, etc., decorates either side of the front yoke, as well as the sleeves. Orange colored beads, as well as other pieces (bone?) trim the jacket. The back of the jacket is trimmed with a large decoration composed of many types of feathers.
