Closeup PEM Decorated Paddle

Found another b&w image of the decorated Chippewa-Ojibwa (Anishinabe) souvenir paddle in Peabody Essex Museum collection. A full colour version can be seen in this earlier post. It has been dated to c.1823-25 and features a painted blade with some decorative etchings of floral motifs in the upper portion.
