Portrait of Louis, XIV

From Canoes: A Natural History in North America by Mark Neuzil and Norman Sims

Info

  • The demand for exotic furs from the New World was driven in part by European royalty, who wore (and were painted in) clothing made from pelts of animals. These are the Sun King’s coronation robes, made from ermine, the white winter coat of a stoat, a species of weasel with a black-tipped tail.
