I do not know the meaning or reason, but I thought this intriguing object to be of Native American culture, signifying flight and food, perhaps. The object was tied to a carefully cleaned branch (like a walking stick), and placed or launched high up into a tree in Cape Arago State Park. I felt very fortunate to have noticed it, and hope that I have not altered its spiritual essence by making a respectful image of it.

Wow! What a find! I've just finished reading a book set more than 100years ago, and featuring the Kwatiutl people of the west coast. I think you're correct in surmising the origin of this creation, Suzi, and I think it will bring you good luck. Cheers! Theolfa

Perhaps someone of the local tribes here will notice this image and tell us more about it. I wish it had been selected for GE to reach a wider audience. Happy hugs, my friend (O:
