Large traditional style 3-inch Sterling silver 22 gauge with hand cut hummingbird and star ray edges. This one was handwrought by PR with 16-stars on the edge with stamped Woodland Wôbanaki designs all around. The middle section is a hand cut ‘Nanatasis”\’ to pull the cloth through – it uses a pin attached to the side of the Nanatasis to secure it [see pics]. [nanatasis/ hummingbird is a warrior bird because of bravery that also represents prayers as they pollinate flowers like those of tobacco – which traditionally is used for prayers] . Surrounding the Nanatasis are the double curve fiddle head with medicine healing plants in their center – they then become canoes traveling in the circle offering healing for all. Trees represent our families and Nations. The overall star shape is to remind us of our ancestors – to remember them and old ways – [the way to heaven is the “star path” of the milky way]. Signed with the Sunrise Drum trademark/hallmark and stamped sterling.
