Created by non-Native American artist Dan Chapman, this axe exhibits trademark Native American inspired craft - from a stylized bear claw insignia, cut from the hand-forged head to the leather wrapped wooden handle.
Fringes, Italian glass beads, red trade cloth, and feather fluffs finish this tribal weapon. According to legend, bears were honored as a powerful spirit. They were specially noted for their bravery and fighting strength, and therefore many American Indian weapons brandish the bear as a warrior symbol. It was believed that when a Native American warrior displayed the image of a bear on his shield he received the bear's attributes in battle.
