Benteau na mara (Name)
  • Notes: Can be woven and can be worn by ayone - no restrictions. To celebrate 15 generations of the Benteau family on the occasion of Frances Benteau's 85th birthday. As a young boy, Michael (surname unknown) arrived during a storm in St. Pierre et Miquelon aboard a fishing boat from Bordeaux, France. In 1843, his son Peter was born in Newfoundland and became the first Benteau of the New World. Many of his descendants made their way to Nova Scotia and beyond but, 165 years later, the Benteaus continue to live and thrive in their homes by the sea. The melding of the blues and green evoke the everchanging colours of our landscape - the forests, the sky and always, the sea. The red is for the Canadian Maple Leaf, the light blue for the French Fleur de Lis and the golden sun radiates throughout. Woven sample.
