Dreamcatcher—14 in. Red

  • 4600

This extra large dreamcatcher, from the Warm Springs Reservation of Oregon, will truly make a statement! Maker Victor Godines wrapped rawhide around a metal hoop that is 14 inches in diameter. He used deep red “artificial sinew” (a synthetic material designed to serve the purpose of the animal tendons or ligaments originally used) to wrap a web into the interior of the circular shape. Victor followed custom by including a feather and a glass stone in the web. His feathers came from wild turkeys that people on the Warm Springs Reservation use as food. Two strands of rawhide hang from each of three sides of the dream catcher and a rawhide loop at the top served as the hanger. Victor Godines’s indigenous background is with the people from his home state of Oaxaca in Mexico, where, beginning by felling individual trees, he constructed yolks for oxen used by farmers to cultivate corn. Now as a member of a family with Wasco and Warm Springs tribal descent, he uses his skills as an artisan in the making of dreamcatchers and other Native crafts.
