John Motherway


It is reported that John might be from Hibbing or Iron Mountain in Minnesota and was part Chippewa. He passed on in 1970s.

It is understood that the black painted eyes was his trademark and has carved from the 30s or 40s.

(the red mark on the top picture appears to have come from something else that it was up against.)
