Hand crafted by Navajo Artist Nathan Boyd from Newcomb New Mexico who is shown on the tag.
This medicine wheel is wrapped with leather and decorated with feathers, glass, bone and metal beads.
The centre is a slice of deer antler which has been handpainted with a traditional design.
A medicine wheel was a very personalised item. It would be placed in front of the tepee, and decorated with specific symbols, colours, and stones, telling the story of the people living there. It was a reflection of an individual's strengths and weaknesses, and it gave guidelines to follow for personal growth.
It is basically a circle divided by a cross representing the circle of life and the four directions - north, east, south, and west. Each person has their place somewhere within the circle, depending upon the date they were born. This is represented by a combination of the moon cycle they were born under, their power animal, corresponding healing plants, colours and a mineral/gemstone.
Use this medicine wheel as a base to personalise with your own items.
Measures approx 14cm (diameter) and 33cm long (excluding the plaited rawhide hanger).
All our Navajo products are authentic items purchased from a local business trading on Navajo Nation land in New Mexico.
