This crossed arrows coyote shield represents friendship and wisdom. The crossed arrows represent friendship and coyote medicine brings wisdom. The arrows are handmade with obsidian arrowheads and tied with artificial sinew. They are fletched with imitation eagle feathers.
Eagle is considered to be the Messenger to the Gods, because he flies higher than any other bird. Eagle feathers are used to fan prayers to the Creator in native american ceremonies.
The coyote skull (shown bleached white) is suspended with authentic buckskin leather in a circle of coyote fur that is approximately 15 inches in diameter. The skull is decorated with buckskin streamers and brass beads. Total width, including the crossed arrows is approximately 24 inches.
The circle is covered in fur and the buckskin streamers holding the feathers are decorated with glass crow beads, imitation eagle wing feathers, and white turkey fluff feathers shown.
