May 28, 2010 — 2 Comments

Feast your eyes upon the “Spirit Guides Native American Style Tomahawk Replica” from a company called “Collectibles Today.” In case its use was unclear, it’s a wall hanging. duh. Besides the obvious stereotypes–tomahawk, wolves, feathers, beading, connection to the mystical, etc, you MUST read the description:

Be guided by the wolf’s commanding spirit and remarkable courage with this awe-inspiring sculptural collectible Native American style tomahawk replica. This magnificent wall display combines a rich tradition and wolf artistry. Just look at the custom piercing on the sculpted blade as it creates the image of a majestic wolf howling at the moon on a starlit night.

Celebrate a creature of mystery and great power with this striking handcrafted limited-edition Native American style tomahawk replica, available exclusively from The Hamilton Collection. This tomahawk replica boasts wolf art “carvings” of a pack of wolves on the handle, and is decorated with real feathers, leather cording, “beadwork” and simulated turquoise. Makes unique wall decor and it’s a fantastic wolf art gift. Heavy demand is expected, and you won’t want to miss out. Order now!

Wow. Just one question: what is “wolf artistry?” I didn’t know wolves could sculpt!

This beauty can be yours for the low, low price of only one payment of $39.95 (+$7.99 shipping and handling). It says heavy demand is expected, so you better get on it.

Also, my friend Steven found this from a Facebook ad. If anyone else comes across similar examples, please send them my way.

May the great power and commanding spirit of the wolf be with you!

    “native-themed” “native style” “native-american inspired”…it’s not hard not to feel sick to my stomach.
