Paula says -

"This incredibly beautiful work of art was entirely hand crafted, carved, wood burned, and painted. There are no is no glue-on decals, no tracings or appliqués used.

"This lidded gourd is a one-of-a-kind box, designed, carved, wood burned and painted all by hand and in ceremonial spirit by Apache artist Cynthia Whitehawk. This is a big thick, strong gourd making a wonderful natural box. A perfect place to store your smudging supplies, jewelry or other sacred objects.

How This Box was Made

"Each gourd (gourd is another of Mother Nature's wood items) is grown and crafted with respect and ceremony. PYROGRAPHY is used - carving into the surface with fire. Followed by using archival quality dyes, paints & sealer to accent the design, letting the beauty of the natural gourd shine through." - Cynthia Whitehawk

From Apache Artist Cynthia Whitehawk

MY MISSION: We are thankful and honored to be able to respect the Spirits of the plants, animals and Mother Earths elements who give themselves and continue their life as healing tools for us. We offer these tools for Spiritual expression, to be in balance with Mother Earth and one's self.

HAWK: Represents a strong Life force. Achievement of great things through persistence and sheer strength of will. Hawk can also help a person understand and overcome obstacles in their lives and how to attain prosperity and abundance.

MEDICINE WHEEL - The Medicine Wheel represents American Indian Spirituality - the journey each individual must take to find his or her path. The Medicine Wheel is based on the four cardinal directions and the four sacred colors. A circle represents life; at the center of the circle is the eternal fire.

MINIATURES - The techniques used in the creation of this one of a kind art are the most difficult to master. Miniature pyrography (carving with fire) takes the utmost of patience, a precise clear vision, as well as an extremely delicate hand. Not only is miniature work the most difficult, but the most time consuming, add to that working on a slick rounded surface which requires the highest of skill. This art is extremely rare and only practiced by the most gifted of people.
