The Blessing
 $695 - sold
 

Height - 17", Width - 9", Depth - 7".  One-of-a-kind figure whose head and limbs are sculpted from polymer clay, with a cloth body over a wire armature, and glass eyes.  The shaman is dressed in suede and fur, with a bear claw necklace.
 

"The Blessing" portrays a smudging ceremony, performed in many Native American societies.  The shaman holds sage in one hand and a feather fan in the other.  When the sage is smoking, those who are participating in the blessing turn slowly as the shaman fans the fragrant smoke on them to cleanse their spirits.
