Picture Stones: Native Tradition
A story was told of an old wise Medicine Man named Mugwa who one day was sitting along a running stream which ran uphill.
Mugwa heard a vision that said" "Look at the stones!" Hearing this, Mugwa began to search the stones around him And one caught his eye. Upon picking it up he saw a picture of Katonka upon the stone, and knew then the humor of the Creator, and the wonder of the gift from Mother Earth.
To this day Medicinemen and Medicinewoman have had the gifts of Picture Stones found and brought to them one finding them. Each picture stone having its' own story and great power of insight upon the stones. Some feel warm as some even feel cold. Creators' humor is upon each stone crafted from The Hand which holds us all as One Blood and One Nation.

And I share to the Nations that which I have received: Every stone we are gifted to see and find is cleansed and stood upon the Fire Ring Every picture stone has been within the smoke of the tobacco Picture stones are good medicine! Unto all the Nation we share as we have been given freely. This ring found by Larry has been cleansed the proper ways. It is very rare in that the picture is in the deepest details. It is seeking a new Warrior!
Remember tradition! Mugwa!
Hope you enjoyed! Blessings:

Note from Larry:
I was blown away because I admit I would never have looked and did not look at the cabs natural formation forming a perfect picure. I can now see. I remain amazed not knowing about this for over 40 years looking at gemstones.
The photos do not do justice to its very clear in person picture detailing. Sorry!

Remarkable picture naturally formed. I was awed and shared this with my husband who is a Native Indian.
