bas-relief sculpture "Eel Fishing" depicts the activity
of 17th century eel fishing by the Wampanoag tribe. Sarah contacted
the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Council to learn about eel fishing
for the creation of her plaque.
Sculptor Sarah Peters recently created a series of eleven bronze
bas-relief plaques for the town of Falmouth, Massachusetts. Commissioned
by a group of public art enthusiasts known as "The Committee
to Encourage Public Art", the plaques represent many of the
historic industries that were significant to the town. After each
plaque was completed (a process which took ten months to complete
and three weeks to cast), it was permanently installed along the
sidewalk that abuts the library lawn on Main Street.
