Curator’s comments

Aminah made the small leather book bag for her son when he was in elementary school. It is carved with words of wisdom to remind him of "the way to walk in life." Aminah acquired hides from a tannery located near her home. She prepared the hides herself, carved and painted them, and made bags, backpacks, and purses from the leather scraps.
