Petroglyph Shaman Staff

 

Petroglyphs from around the world have a mysterious allure, recording stories lost to the ages. The entire upper half of this staff is ornately covered with petroglyphs from various cultures burned into the wood. Many originate from the American Southwest.

The decretive band is made of rawhide and adorned with numerous beads including 2 made from walrus teeth and another from a canine claw. The top has several stones embedded and wrapped with waxed hemp including tiger’s eye and a tektite – which was formed from the heat of a meteorite impact. It stands at 66” tall and has been given three coats of polyurethane for aesthetics and protection from the elements.

This staff is perfect for ceremonies, or just going for a casual walk.
