The Chief honors his ancestors, telling stories of their history to his tribe. His own story is written on his body in ink.


"The Chief" is a one-of-a-kind, handmade gourd sculpture. It's made of 7 gourds and pieces assembled together to make a seamless minimal form. Sections are securely attached with adhesive and epoxy clay, then painted beige and tan to match the natural color of the gourds. The "tattoo" patterns are fully hand drawn with a brush-style ink pen, referencing from real tribal tattoo designs from various cultures. The sculpture is sealed with a fixative and acrylic sealer.

It stands 10.25" tall, and is 5" wide and 5.5" deep.
