Medicine Skull

Medicine Skull

Evan picked up this bleached skull in the Washakie Wilderness before the fire season of 1994. As is so often the case in extremis, things came into focus for Evan over the course of that summer and come winter time he painted the skull to reflect his understandings. A handful of things have been added over the years for the same reason. When it came time for Evan to embellish his outdoor designs with a maker's mark, it was only natural to adapt this longstanding personal symbol to the purpose.


Edward Curtis Canyon De Chelly
When humans first set foot in a new continent, they came in small groups under their own power, bringing only the gear they needed. Most simply called themselves The People. Over time, those who chose the rougher freer life of the up country came to think of themselves as the Hill People.
