Native American artist Jeremiah Little Wounded hand made this incredible example of a long lance. Lances used for buffalo hunting were long and had to thrust with so much force that it would penetrate hide and heart.
Jeremiah uses wood for the shaft of the lance, and then attaches a cold forged iron blade to the end. The shaft of the lance is decorated with glass beads, buffalo fur and leather strips.
Jeremiah hangs two tails from the lance, each tail is made from leather with glass bead decorations and glass bead wrapped imitation eagle feathers.
He finishes the decoration of the lance with a decorated rawhide cover for the lance blade.
Length 82 | Width 9 (the lance blade cover) | Deep 2.25 inches
