Detail of "Eel Fishing".

The 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.
