Antique Civil War Era Crucifix Skull Crossbones Sioux Sitting Bull Necklace


CHIEF SITTING BULL
FUR TRADE & CIVIL WAR ERA
ANTIQUE BRASS CRUCIFIX on 36" BEAD NECKLACE

On offer is an antique crucifix, similar to that worn by Chief Sitting Bull in the above photograph. This famous portrait of Sitting Bull was taken by D. F. Barry in 1885, several weeks after Sitting Bull's surrender. The crucifix around his neck was given to him by Father De Smet at the peacemaking council in 1868. Fr. Peter De Smet was a missionary in the Rocky Mountain region.
Jesuit missionaries were often called " Blackrobes " by Native Americans. The color pattern of the necklace resembles antique Lakota Sioux Beadwork.

The fine antique crucifix is Solid Brass with ebony wood inlay.
- The crucifix dates from the 1800s.
- It measures 5 inches long by 2.25 inches wide.
- The crucifix exhibits beautiful patina and is in marvelous condition.

The CORPUS Christ figure is finely detailed Solid Brass with great patina.
Note the Unusual Features and Excellent Craftsmanship:
- The Christ figure is hand made with file marks on the edges .
All the attachments are complete, tight and intact. None are loose.
- The TITLE BOARD scrolled with INRI.
- The HALO Starburst Nimbus behind the Head of Christ.
- The SKULL & CROSSBONES common on crucifixes throughout the 1800s, symbolizing "Victory over Death" and the Tradition of Adam (the hill w Christ was crucified was the hill of Golgatha, The Place of the Skull).

Inspired by the Sitting Bull Cross, this necklace also features an antique-holed 1844 half penny from The Bank of Montreal.
The coin is attached to the necklace using a ringlet of antique CORNALINE D'ALEPPO Trade Beads, also known as "White Hearts".
The heaviest trading of the Cornaline d' Aleppo beads began about 1854 and lasted until the end of the century. The first Venetian white-heart beads had a pinkish white center. Around 1860 the core of the red white heart had become white as opposed to the pinkish white. By 1880 the outer red layer had become a much more brilliant red due to the introduction of modern dyes.
- The ringlet on this necklace is made up of the original PINKISH WHITE Cornaline d'Aleppo Trade Beads .

An excellent item for Collectors and Re-enactors .

Chief Sitting Bull
Chief Sitting Bull (Tatanka Iyotaka; c.1831-1890) was a Hunkpapa Sioux Leader, Medicine Man, and Holy Man.
In July and August, 1888, in a conference at Standing Rock, Dakota, Sitting Bull influenced his tribe to refuse to relinquish Indian lands.
Chief Sitting Bull was assassinated in 1890 when followers tried to rescue him from the reservation police.
Tatanka Iyotaka in his day was one of the most influential leaders on the prairie.
Today, he is the most recognizable Indian in the world.

Perfect for Pow Wows, Rendezvous, Renaissance
