Item details

Vintage from the 1980s

A fine example of Medicine Wheel art, composed of bones, feathers, beads, wood, antler, claw, and leather. The etched inscription on one side of the carnivore jaw bone reads 'FANTASY EATEN BY JAWS OF REALITY' on one side, and '1985' with the circled 'C' and 'LV/KS' on the obverse. The legend from the vendor-source indicates that this is penitentiary art from Leavenworth Prison in the 1980s,and is Cherokee made, but there is no corroboration for that story anywhere that my research has taken me. In very good condition, especially considering the '1985' date. Measures about 29 inches overall
