A circular platform raised on four legs is topped with a central pole and two flyers, surrounded by several human figures.
One of the most commonly used ancient Indigenous weapons was war clubs. An Iroquois ball head war club is featured in this sale. Several pieces of jewelry and decorative art will also be presented, including a Hopi silver and stone bracelet by Charles Loloma.
