Native American Lamp with Rawhide Shade
Inspired by the 19th century frontier history, H.J. Nick has designed these heirloom quality pieces. Guaranteed forever, these custom table lamps are hand made by master blacksmiths, sculptors, and leathersmiths at Scottsdale Art Factory.
These lamps have been carefully fashioned after spears used by the great Southwestern tribes. These lamps are decorated with ceremonial items such as real gemstone turquoise and wild bird feathers. The center adornment is hand forged iron that displays the hand cut copper silhouette of a horse and rider. Each spear is individually wrapped with genuine rawhide lacing, and the shade itself is 100% hand stitched rawhide. The lamp's triangular base is hand chipped from a solid block of sandstone quarried from the foothills of the Navajo nation. The sandstone's rich colors and unique patterns help ensure that each lamp is its own individual piece of artwork that carries a small portion of Native American history. We apply only patina finishes to ensure the longest lasting, heirloom quality art. Patina is created by hand applying oxides to the iron and firing them at over 1000 degrees to create a finish that is a permanent part of the metal. A patina will never fade, crack, or chip, and will only improve with age. Lamps are UL listed.

Historical Origin And Design Inspiration
Any member of various Native American tribes that formerly inhabited the Great Plains of the U.S. and southern Canada. Plains Indians are popularly regarded as the typical American Indians. They were essentially big-game hunters, the buffalo being a primary source of food and equally important as a source of materials for clothing, shelter, and tools. Until supplanted by the white settlers from the 16th century onward, the Plains Indians occupied the area between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains, which includes portions of both the United States and Canada. It is a vast grassland stretching from northern Alberta and Saskatchewan in Canada to the Rio Grande border of Texas
Although the Indians hunted other animals, such as elk or antelope, bison was the primary game food source. Before horses were introduced, hunting was a more complicated process. The Native Americans would surround the bison, and then try to herd them off cliffs or into places where they could be more easily killed. A commonly used technique was the Piskin method. The tribesmen would build a corral and have people herd the buffalo into it to confine them in a space where they could be killed. The Indians constructed a v-shaped funnel, about a mile long, made of fallen trees, rocks, etc. Sometimes buffalo could be lured into a trap by one of the tribe covering himself with a buffalo skin and imitating the call of the animals.
Prior to their adoption of guns, the Plains Indians hunted with spears, bows and arrows, and various forms of clubs. When horses, brought by the Spanish to America, escaped and started breeding in the wild, the Indians quickly learned how to capture and train them. Their ability to ride horses made hunting (and warfare) much easier. With horses, the Indians had the means and speed to stampede or overtake the bison. The Indians reduced the length of their bows to three feet to accommodate their use on horseback.
