The pleated stiffened linen shade was found by Stanley Seeger discarded on a beach.

Narwhal tusks were often part of the European kuntskammer created by discerning collectors of the Renaissance and later. They were historically traded for centuries and often believed to be the mythical horns from unicorns. They were costly objects of wonder and through their connection with the mythological were believed to possess magical properties, including the power to purify poisoned water.
