*** Commission - I can create something similar
The tree is carved elk antler stained green with leather dye. This is from the Iroquois story Skunny Wundy and the Stone Giant. 15" tall. I wanted to carve this with joints so that you could see how this being would have actually moved in real life. I didn't want to make a solid being. As part of the story, before the Stone Giant gets fooled by Skunny Wundy, he rips a pine tree from the earth and beats it on the ground. I believe a lot of our Iroquois stories have ties to other worldly happenings. But due to the time from which these things occurred, we had limited perspective to convey what was actually seen. I think extraterrestrials were common among the worlds ancestors long ago.
