Penobscot rootclub, 1996

Contributed by Hudson Museum, Univ. of Maine

Stanley Neptune, who made this rootclub, learned to carve from Senabeh (Roland Francis).

This club reflects design motifs that were common to the work of his teacher, including the floral chip carving on the club's stock.

Neptune signs his work with an eel, his family's clan symbol.
