Harris Maupin Indians

These items gives me an opportunity to do some whittling as the plugs are carved cherry wood head representing an Osage Indian. The large horn including the head stands about 5" tall and represents in a folk art style the whole person of an Osage. The small Indian is 3" tall. The scrimshawing on these horns container shows arms and legs, tomahawk, and a bear claw necklace. A copper gorget is set in the maple cap along with some incise carving. The ear lobes of the Osage warriors even contain ear-rings.
