Details

Dimensions:

Wand is hand carved, and hand painted. Made from popalar wood and painted with water based apple barrel paints.
Sealed with mod podge, a water based sealant.
This wand took 581 mns to creat from start to finish.

This wand's material was gathered from a 200 acre prairie land, which I have had the delight to help restore. This land runs along the bank of the Namekogan river. An ancient river way in Northwestern Wisconsin. A smaller river, which snakes through my own back 40 acres, links up to the Namekogan, and together, merge into the Mississippi. The name, Namekogan, comes from the Ojibwa word, "Namekaagong-ziibi", meaning, " river at the place abundant with Sturgeon". Sturgeon is a massive freshwater fish native to Wisconsin.

The white crane itself is a special creature and features heavily in chinese mythology and martial ways, where it is used to describe the dancing grace and power of a movement in Tia Chi Chaun called "white crane spreads wings". ( A compound flight like motion that can be found in the Yang Family Short Form, and many other forms.) It is a position of balance, and easy, loose, power. As is the case in most Chinese martial arts.
Not only does the white crane feature as a movement and body position in Tia Chi, there is even a branch of this discipline which explicitly focuses on this majestic bird, naturally called "White Crane Tia Chi."

As a martial artist and dabbler in Tia Chi Chaun, I found inspiration from these arts and legends to create the Stylized White Crane Wand as part of my bird series of wands, which currently includes this one, and Falco sparverius ( the Kestrel ) which can be found under my sold listings.
