Chi Wara Headdress
Abstract Horizontal Chi Wara Headdress
Bamana Tribe, Mali, 1900 - 1910. Among the finest of its kind one will encounter, this exceptional "chi wara" (with many different spellings), is literally translated as "working animal", for its spiritual relevance to the fertility of the soil for the Bamana Tribe in Mali, West Africa. Carved from a single piece of wood, it demonstrates the exceptional talent of a carver who sought to convey the power of this mythical animal, which combines features of the roan antelope, the gazelle, and other animals such as the anteater, warthog, horse, and more. It has been customary for thousands of years for headdresses and masks to be carved which call upon the spirits of the bush and seek their power and blessings in application to human existence, for health, fertility, wealth, and protection.
JFK Assassination

 

The Jim Garrison Files of the JFK Assassination
This important, one-of-a-kind collection documents one of the most significant and tragic events in the history of our nation - the assassination of President John F. Kennedy as his motorcade passed through downtown Dallas. The seemingly inexplicable murder of the young president over 50 years ago on November 22, 1963, remains shrouded in mystery and doubts, with many still believing conspiracy theories surrounding his assassination.

Euclase Crystals, Columbia
La Marina Mine, Pauna, Boyaca, Columbia; Fine robin's egg blue Euclase crystals are rare and highly prized among collectors. The most valued crystals of Euclase are clear blue with great luster. The most desired color is rich robin's egg blue. It's unusual to find even one undamaged blue Euclase gem crystal. It's almost impossible to find one undamaged Euclase crystal on matrix, and it's extremely rare to find a cluster of 6 pristine lustrous robin's egg blue gem Euclase crystals on snow-white albite matrix.
