Paula says - "You may have heard of Ledger Art, where Indians used the materials at hand, such as old ledger paper from forts and missions, on which to paint and draw. Well, this is Cigar Box Art, a creative repurposing of vintage cigar boxes by Lakota artist Alan Monroe.

"This vintage cigar box box has a catlinite medicine bear on the lid. The bear paw designs are burned into the wood and painted with the four sacred colors: red, white, black and yellow. Use this treasure box to store smudge supplies such as sweetgrass, sage or other herbs and ceremonial items, or use it as a jewelry or keepsake box."

Pipestone, also known as catlinite, is a form of clay called argillite with a high iron content that colors it a deep red to pale orange. Pipestone was discovered in southwestern Minnesota by the Sioux Indians, who consider it a sacred material and use it to carve pipes and other ceremonial objects. It is easy to carve because of its lack of quartz. Read about pipestone and how it is quarried.
