Native American artist Jim Little Wounded (Minneconjou Lakota) carves a wooden dance stick to commemorate the relationship between the Lakota and the Pronghorn. Pronghorn (also known as antelope), are an ancient mammal that has lived here for a million years. Evolving with the continent, they can eat plants that are poisonous to domestic animals, their small powerful bodies can reach speeds up to 60mph.
Jim starts with a piece of wood that has been shaped, painted and stained. He adds beaded eyes and carved horns. He finishes the decoration of the piece with imitation owl feathers, leather dangles that feature glass beads, metal bells and a beaded Pronghorn amulet.
The piece is signed by the artist.
