Great Lakes Styled Sable Club by Nathan Gagich

This Great Lakes styled sable club is made from a Elm root club which he dug up like the originals. He also carved into it a faux war record and associated effigies. This piece is not a copy of a original but was made in the style of the originals.

Happy Thanksgiving!
