C$225.00Price

An approximate portrayal of the Bighorn medicine wheel in Wyoming. Featuring 28 spokes from a ring shaped central cairn, with 6 cairns around the outer ring. The first to be termed "medicine wheel" by European settlers who found it on top of medicine mountain in the Bighorn range. It is believed to have alignments with the heliacal risings of Sirius, Rigel, and Aldebaran, as well as alignments with the summer solstice sunrise and sunset.

A work that can make a one of a kind addition to any living space. Made with a substrate of pulp and plaster. The tiny white stones are placed individually into the substrate along with field grasses and a fine sand. The artwork is adhered to a backboard and mounted with screws into a rustic, aged and distressed cedar rough cut frame, behind glass with a frosted border. Item sold will be the one seen in the photo's.

Comes with a description, a brief history of the medicine wheel, mounting hanger and felt wall protectors (already attached).
