Cradle model made from a wooden hoop covered with plain cloth over horizontal wooden slats. The cloth is decorated with overlays of wool flannel in orange only along the edges. An opening down the middle of the board is loosely stitched together with thread. The cloth is stuffed with soft material. The hood is made from wide slats of wood secured together at the ends. The interior of the hood is lined with cloth which wraps around to the exterior edge. Two strands of dark blue beads hang from the top of the hood, one strand ends with a white bead.
