I know this is bizarre. About fifty years ago, in Japan, they made these little taxidermy chicks and ducks. I have no idea why but I have a few of them that I bought at flea markets. This little one is peeping out of my new display table and a duckling sits in the back.
I added a few more 'treasures' to my display table. The two carved objects just up from the old wallet, are arrow shapers. Native American indians each had them and the shape and markings were carved into the pottery. It was how they told which ones were their own. The shapers had a hole through the center and the indians would put them over a stick and go back and forth, sanding and shaping their arrows. From where I got them, I think they are from the Muscogee Creek Nation.
The little hand made soft leather doll just above is in an indian style dress. The thunderbird inlay necklace to the left was made by a SW indian tribe, but I can't remember which one right now. They made them for the tourist trade and used old 78 records to cut up for a firm base and template then used coral and turquoise and other stones for decoration.
The tiny basket to the left of it is Cherokee. The black basket just above it is made from horsehair and has a lid on it. Can't remember that tribe at the moment. Two little arrowheads sit just to the left of the baskets, but the thing above is a medicine bag. I opened it once and it was full of different plant materials.
I had a friend once and her step-father, a full blood Choctaw indian, used to have these little bags tucked under cushions and beds; all over the house. She said he would take hair from their hairbrushes and wrap it around bones and things to make good medicine and keep bad medicine away from them.
