Woodworker: Bill Churchill

Churchill's inspiration for this carving came from an article about Crazy Horse, who had a vision of himself riding a fast horse and wearing a red-tailed hawk feather. While doing so, he could not be hit by enemy arrows or bullets. The vision gave the Lakota leader courage to lead his people to many victories. Finished with boiled linseed oil and beeswax, the poplar carving is 9 in. deep by 38 in. wide by 14 in. tall.
