Introduction

Wolf Harvey is a Missouri-born artist and master creator of Native American art including carving and sculpting. Born not far from the Cherokee Trail of Tears, he is perhaps one of the most talented young artists of our time. He resides in Buffalo, Missouri.

Few artists can rival the standards of excellence with brilliance, superiority and distinction achieved by Master Artist Wolf Harvey over the past 20+ years. He is truly one of the country's most widely talented, recognized, primitive Native American artists who won First Place at the 36th Annual Trail of Tears Art Show in Tahlequah, Oklahoma in the Sculpture Division.

Wolf Harvey is one of the most sought after primitive, Native American artists and is most popular in Black Powder and Pow-Wow circles and Native American art.

Relief Carving

Mr. Harvey is best known for his diverse artistic abilities. He transforms natural skulls and bones in to masterpieces of art by relief carving and painting. He created a traditional six-hole Native American flute from a bear arm bone with remarkable sound. He carved a life-size snapping turtle sculpture made from cedar and hand-hammered copper shell complete with mastodon ivory claws, a gourd rattle and amber eyes to which the base was a two and a half foot hollow tree with the story of “Grandfather Turtle” painted in it. The turtle stood on a marble top placed over the tree stump.
