Golgotha in New Mexico Medicine Bag, CUSTOM bag for Robert... I found this particular image a couple of months ago... I knew the photographer Mike Goebal likely took this because it could symbolized the Christian cross in the New Mexico wilderness. It puzzles me why the Christians use this as a symbolic icon of their faith. I saw it only as a tool for murder and torture throughout many centuries, It was employed to punish not only the guilty, but of the innocent, such as the Master, Jesus, the Christ. But, I saved it not knowing why. Recently, a client sent me an image of the Christ's heinous murder, used by the Spanish colonials. He was requesting one of my medicine bags with this image painted on it. I had planned to turn him down when I remembered this photo. So I asked if he would "let me take my head" when you mean to use your own discretion in the language of the West, He agreed and the Golgotha of New Mexico was born...

This gray leather bag is 3 1/2 by 5 inches embellished with silver glass and blueish sodolite stone beads with a 32 inch braided leather lanyard...

The section called Gallery CUSTOM from Sold is to help customers wanting a custom-made bag to find similar bag ideas. Select one of these and I will make a CUSTOM bag for you similar to it or of the same subject matter. The bag color is of my choice but I will try to accommodate a special request. These bags cannot be duplicated, obviously, being one-of-a-kind creations. Once a custom-made order is placed there are no exchanges, new selection or return.
Earthwayspirits medicine bags are hand crafted and hand painted, one of a kind. The craftmeanship of the leather pouch is substantial. The beading is secured with polyester threat to prevent breaking. The painting, however, will not withstand misuse of any kind; stretching, scraping or exposing it to any liquids. I use a fabric paint sealant to make the paint and ink more adherant. Under normal wear and tear, earthwayspirits medicine bags should last years. Store in a dry, dark and cool place...
Allow me 8 days to create your medicine bag and then add shipping time. Please inquire through Etsy messaging if you would like to request a specific color leather or beading be used, only if available.
