Mohican pipe tomahawk

April 15, 2009

This ‘hawk is based loosely on an original Mohican tomahawk. The symbolic heart is part of the interpretation. What struck me working on this piece is the duality of the  peaceful ceremonial pipe, balanced by the bellicose cutting edge.

Steel tomahawk head mounted on Brazilwood shaft with sterling band. Heart pierced through blade, engraved on both faces.
