Native American tipi model honors Hayes

Minneapolis, MN

I loved honoring Marine Ira Hayes, the Pima Indian from Arizona, on this side of the tipi. The tipi stands about two-and-a-half feet high. I cut lilac branches from our hedges. Very nice, smooth wood. All the Indian designs are from thousands of toothpicks. Just Google "Greg Kelly Minneapolis Based Artist" for the beginnings of the tipi. I work on it about an hour and a half every day. I support The American Legion by paying special tribute to outstanding American soldiers with my artworks.
