#2011 Description: Western Bronze Sculpture, by Renowned Western Artist, Jeff Wolf, Entitled "The Talking Glass", Limited Edition 3 of 20. A number of different Indian cultures used long-distance signaling systems in war and in hunting. The most stereotyped of these is the use of smoke-signals.
In addition to smoke signals, Indian people also used signal mirrors. The number and kinds of flashes were used to symbolize the communication. Mirror signals were commonly used by hunting scouts to indicate the type, number, and location of game. Similarly, war party scouts used mirrors to indicate information about the enemy.
“The Looking Glass” depicts two Indian braves signaling to their hunting party and receiving confirmation of the message sent. (Note: currently available)
