    Default Native American Items/ Decorating (NON-AUDIO)

    I mentioned in the Off Topic area that I had a small collection of Native American themed items, that I would like to move along to greener pastures. The wife is not down with anything that resembles the time when she met me...so its all going out the door.

    I will post pictures and a brief description of the item. Let me know if you need additional information, although I do not claim to be a historian. Only a few of the items are hardcore genuine, the others are simply complimentary pieces.

    The items include shipping to CONUS.

    Thanks for your interest, and sorry its not audio related. Actually I have a audio tie-in for one piece, that you will see later....so I guess I am safe :D

    The prices are fair, and I assure you it is far less than what I paid for when they were new.

    Default FRAGS - Jondu Designs

    Here are a couple favorites of mine. These are called "Frags", by California Artist, John Running. These are handcrafted imitation petroglyphs of ancient stone carvings. The look like real stone, but are a composite material of sandstone, and some other things. I will let the website speak specifics.

    [url]http://www.runningrockart.com/[/url]

    Each one is different, and has been well cared for. There are no imperfections other than the ones intended during the casting of the art.

    $25/each

    Here is "Buffalo Heart" #F155:

    Default Navajo - Sandpainting (Boxes) - Unknown

    I have two(2) Navajo Sandpainted boxes. They were purchased in Arizona, when I was trying to find the Lost City of Beer. Here is some data from a tag inside one of them:

    [i][b]A History of This Authentic Navajo Sandpainting[/i][/b]

    [i]The sandpainting you see originates from Navajo healing ceremonies. The medicine man builds a sandpainting and places the patient in the middle of it. To aid in the healing process, sand from the sandpainting is rubbed over certain parts of the patient's body. When the ceremony is over, the sandpainting is destroyed, thereby destroying the illness.

    Sandpaintings are very detailed, colorful and each figure carries a special meaning. The designs are made up of many subjects familiar to the Navajo people - YEIS (Yays) or Navajo Holy people. Rainbows, Sacred Plants, Roots, Trees, and Birds. [/i]

    The large one below, 7X7, has a small nick in the lid, top right corner. They are made of Oak to the best of my knowledge. It is about two inches deep, with a removeable lid, the sandpainting portion. Felt lined.

    Oak, 7X7, Two Kachina Sandpainting Drawing, Box, $20:

    Default Table Runner - Wool(?) - Unknown *SOLD*

    [b]*SOLD*[/b]

    This is a small table runner, but I am unsure of its actual origin. I know it was purchased from "The Turqouise Lady" in Chicago, and at that time, the store was well known for genuine Native American items.

    I don't think she is in business anymore and its a shame, because I picked up alot of cool stuff from that store over the years.

    The runner is very tightly woven, and in excellent condition. It used to say something on the tag, sewn to the rear, but it is unreadable at this time. The material doesn't feel like cotton, so I will presume it is wool.

    Table Runner, 19X9, Unknown, Handwoven, $5:

    Default Skull - Buffalo - N/A

    This is an authentic Buffalo skull. I used to have the lower jawbones also, but cannot locate them anymore. It was whitewashed a long time ago. The whitewash has not stood the test of time, and the original bone white skull is showing, which is actually better looking. I don't recall where I picked this up...it wasn't my back yard I know for sure ;)

    It is in pretty good shape, the very tips of the horns have deteriorated, and some teeth are loose....but everything is intact. It is an animal skull, so it has imperfections. A nice summer in the sun, will bleach it bright white again.

    19 inches, tip to tip, horns
    16 inches, length
    8.5 inches, eyesockets

    I used to mount this with the large arrow bundle I will post later, behind it....it looked really nice.

    Buffalo Skull, Large, White, $25:

    [b]*SOLD*[/b]

    Here is a rack from a Wyoming Whitetail deer....not that it matters much. Attached to skull cap.

    8Pt, 12-13" spread, 4 real nice individual points, beams are somewhat thin....its a great set. You could make some ruttin' antlers, knife handles, mount them, etc. You could even tell someone you just shot the beast, whatever you want to do is fine by me. :)

    Default TP - Stainless Steel(Burnished) - Unknown

    This is a burnished, stainless steel decorative, TeePee(Am). It is 9" high, with the "sticks" and has a candle votive(Tealight) for the inside. You light the votive, and set the TP over top of the light.

    The TP has a buffalo, moon, little dipper and some other small tidbits plasma cut into walls. I like this piece alot. It is just a regular artist, to the best of my knowledge. I picked this up in Chicago, at "The Turqouise Lady".

    Default Outlet Cover - Various - Franzetti

    I have a bunch of these outlet covers, they are outlet specific. They are real cool for finishing touches or just to be over the top. All but one of them are from Pozzi Franzetti - Metalworks, a known metalworks artist in the New Mexico area.

    [url]http://franzettimetal.com/index.html[/url]

    These are really a good find, and not a common goody.

    Put me down for all the outlet covers cochise. I've been looking for more since our last trip to Santa Fe.

    Default Kachina - Large - Kokapelli

    This is a large Kachina doll, modelled after Kokapelli. The only flaw with this 18" figure, is that the peacock feathers are worn. They were a little mangled in the box that I had it stored inside. The feathers can actually be picked up at a craft store, and redone. I did not want to alter the original before resale, so that would be up to you.

    It is constructed of Rabbit Fur, Wood, and Leather. It is signed and numbered(429313). It was also signed by the artist, when I bought it, but I cannot make out her last name...nor do I remember it really.

    Kachina, Large, 18", Wood/Leather/Fur, Signed, $20:

    Default Oneida - Dance Bow - Decorative

    This is an authentic Oneida Indian Dance Bow - Hootchoo Collection. I say decorative, because of its size, its not regular size. I displayed it over a doorway if that helps any. Condition is excellent, the feathers have always been frayed.

    *BUMP*

    I am moving these items to Ebay, in the coming weeks. I have some more stuff, but havn't heard to much interest, which is cool, so let me know if these are things that interest you.

    I am very flexible on prices.

    All the outlet covers were sold to RUSSMAN.
