Feather Dreams and Finding Treasures: Native American Medicine Shield

A while back I had a dream about finding feathers. Mainly they were black and white. At the end of the dream was one white feather. Two days later, I found this very large treasure at a thrift store. I knew that it was a Native American medicine shield, and I knew that it was another gift from the Universe. I was unsure of its value, and it had no price tag. I also knew that if I walked away from this treasure, someone else would grab it up and I’d be mad at myself.

The medicine shield is made of wool, leather, feathers, and rabbit fur. Some minor things need to be replaced, cleaned, and repaired, and I plan to do so using my own touch of symbols from the ocean. I will post when complete.
