This is a Plains Indians skull crusher from the late 1800's. It has an overall length of 15", with the stone being 5 1/4" long, 2" wide and oval in shape. Actually, it is shaped remarkably like a football! The wooden shaft is covered in rawhide and wrapped with colorful seed beads. This skull crusher has a very small loop at the end of the haft, also wrapped with beads. Two small tufts of hair, dyed red, are attached at the stone and at the loop. The stone is most likely a type of river rock. The rawhide is tight to the shaft and the stone. This one seems to be more of a ceremonial type, than one made for actual battle. This is an amazing example of a Plains Indian skull crusher from the Indian Wars period.
