“Two new acquisitions help the British Museum tell the story of the coppers.”

The British Museum’s blog recently published an informative post on copper shields, or tinaás. Alison Bremner’s “Five” pendant from her Potlatch Dollar series is included as one of two new acquisitions.

Bremner’s piece will be on display at the British Museum’s Anthropology Library and Research Centre until December 2014.
