Erik Sappier Chip-carved Talking Stick

This talking stick is finely carved; it depicts a man wearing a traditional Wabanaki headdress, with feathers pointing straight up. The chip-carving is of the finest order, beautifully and meticulously detailed. The strong contrast in the paint colors makes this stick stand out.

The figure also features a necklace and stars on its neck and chest. The artist left the bark on the wood around the face and on the reverse side, for additional interesting texture.

9 1/4 inches tall x approximately 3/4 inch diameter.

Erik Sappier Chip-carved Talking Stick

Erik Sappier runs an adventure guiding service with his brother in the Maine wilderness. Because of his business, Sappier does not carve frequently and his work is hard to find. His wood chipping is of the finest order, and his limited use of color adds excitement and surprise to his work.

Sappier lives on Indian Island, part the traditional Penobscot homeland on the Penobscot river.
