Banded Slate Birdstone


Measures 1 3/4 inches long, by 1/2 of an inch wide, by 7/8 of an inch high.

Birdstones were made in a great variety of poses and styles, but follow certain rules of proportion and style that I've learned through studying many examples. 


When I carve a birdstone, I'm not copying a particular example exactly, I'm carving my own interpretation, just like the ancients! 


It's amazing to me how much information can be communicated with just a few strategically placed curves. I really enjoy carving these  #tinysculptures, but it takes a lot of patience!!

Pipes of this style were used about 2,000 years before present by the Hopewell culture in the Ohio River Valley. This fine piece of Minnesota Catlinite, the traditional sacred pipestone of Native Americans. I purchased this rock directly from a Native American miner who quarried it at the Pipestone National Monument.
