Native American ➔ Feather Sculpture

Identifier:
2009.3.1
Description:
This sculpture is made of carved, highly polished stone in the shape of a feather on a circular base. The front is carved with details of the feather and an incised turtle. On the back are seven steel ball bearings representing the teachings of the seven grandfathers: wisdom, love, respect, bravery, honesty, humility, and truth.

This sculpture was created by local Anishinaabe artist Jason Quigno, who served as the Featured Artist for the Museum's annual indoor Pow Wow in 2007. The Pow Wow was a gathering of the Native American and at-large communities to celebrate the rich culture and traditions of the Anishinabe people.
