Description:  This is the largest Cree decoy I have ever seen. Historically, these were made as hunting decoys, and they may have had real feathers stuck into the twinning to look more like a live bird.   This one is later and was most likely made for tourist trade.  This one is in excellent condition and would make a great sculpture in anyone’s home.
