The spiritual figure for the Seal People was imagined to take on the identities of many of the local animals. For costume designer Michael O’Connor, “He represents two different elements and animals the Seal people revered; the Stag and the Sea Eagle.” The look, however, proved easier to image than create: “the cloak was made to look like eagle feathers but turkey feathers were the nearest we cold find. We dyed them in different groups of browns and grays. The feathers were all place by hand and two complete capes and three complete masks were made.”
