"Old Big Arrangment"
A re-creation of the medicine wheel formation near to Majorville, Alberta. Named "Omahkiyaahkohtoohp" which is blackfoot for Old Big Arrangment. It features a 9m. diameter central cairn with 28 spokes enclosed within a 28m. diameter ring. There is a large boulder placed between the main formation and a crescent shape of 7 rocks producing alignments with it's central cairn. Numerous rock groupings and marker rocks in the area surrounding it suggest several solar alignments.
A work that can make a one of a kind addition to any living space. Every piece made will have it's own unique qualities that set it apart from any other of similar design and not produced using a template. Made with a substrate of pulp, drywall mud and glue. The tiny black stones are placed individually into the substrate along field grasses. After 1 week of curing, is topped with a mixture of latex and white paint to produce a snowdrift effect. Has a raised central rock cairn that gives the piece a 3 dimensional component. The artwork is adhered to a backboard, and vigorously tested to ensure the stones and grasses remain in place. Mounted with screws in a rustic, aged and distressed cedar rough cut frame, behind glass with a frosted boarder. Comes with a description, a brief history of the medicine wheel, mounting hanger and felt wall protectors (already attached). Item sold will be the one seen in the photo's.
Dimensions: 13 3/4" sq. x 1 1/4" deep
