The "Bulls Forehead" Medicine Wheel
A re-creation of what locals refer to as the Roy Rivers Medicine Wheel, named after the first land owner. Also known as the Bulls Forehead Medicine Wheel, located near the confluence of the Red Deer and South Saskatchewan Rivers, close to Empress Alberta.The formation is part of a vast complex of hundreds of other rock features in the surrounding area. The outer circle is approximately 26 meters in diameter and has been suggested that the formation may have marked the Summer Solstice.
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 with 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.
