Authentic Artifact Native American Indian Grooved Stone Maul, Pounding Tool :
This artifact has been seen by several experts and all agree that it is genuine. The stone head is probably older than the handle, but even that is nearing 100 years of age. It was collected by the Underwood & Underwood photographers who spent time photographing Native American villages in the Southwest during the early 1900's. Many of those photos were then made into stereoscope viewing cards and the company became immensely famous. This implement, as well as other artifacts, were collected during those photographic trips and have been in the family since that time. Since the photographs were made in the Southwest, and this implement bears similarities to other Apache tools, it may be from that tribe. Oh, if only this object could talk. It is a Native American grooved rock or stone pounding instrument , such a s a maul, although one sideof the rock appears to have been shaped into a cutting edge. The wooden tree branch handle is worn smooth and polished by the hands that used it and is 21 and 1/2 inches long. The grooved rock is held to the handle by a hide of some sort. Note the fantastic stitch or weave that keeps the rock bound solidly to the handle. It weighs about two pounds. High buyer to pay $10.00 for shipping.
