It is thought that boat stones were used in the ancient southeast as a spear weight or for ceremonial purposes. They were perfectly carved out of a variety of stones and polished to a high gleam. The side of this timeless shape is carved with a symbolic feather pattern inspired by ancient shell carvings. Perfect for stacking or as a wear alone statement ring! Timeless design by Chickasaw artist, Kristen Dorsey. Signed by the artist.
