Art Collection

Seri Ironwood Carvings

The Seri Ironwood Carvings gallery was created by Egan Liias '05 and Cristina Wood '05, both Anthropology majors at Grinnell College, as a part of their 2004 summer research/M.A.P project.

Work was done with the collection of Seri carvings donated by Dale B. Furnish '62, in order to create physical exhibition cases in Goodnow Hall and this virtual gallery to share Mr. Furnish's generous gift with the public.

Our work also included research on the Seri Indians of Sonora, Mexico; focusing on numerous aspects of their culture, and the necessities for beginning the art of ironwood carving.

We would like to give special thanks to Dale Furnish, Jim Lindell, Lesley Wright, Kathy Kamp, Fred Hagemeister, Paula Forbes, Grinnell College Anthropology Department, and the Faulconer Gallery for all their support.
