Cardinal Robinson

Neanderthal Funeral Vestment [2022]

MATERIALS: Vegetable-tanned Goat Skins, Waxed Thread

DESCRIPTION: Created in collaboration with a local sheep and goat farmer from Blue Spoon Farm, in the Finger Lakes region. Jacqueline Spoon skinned and tanned her animals when their time had come. The construction of this vestment utilized the entire skin, making very intentional cuts where the piece was to be spread about the body. The entire piece was sewn by hand.
