Own a piece of American heritage, a Frank Gallagher original sculpture. “Wood Carvings” were first created after Native Americans introduced English settlers to tobacco in Virginia during the 1600’s. Frank Gallaghers ancestor, one of the first wooden Indian carvers, started carving his Indians in the 1840’s. His great, great grandson Frank is known to be one of approximately 12 true full-blooded Man-Dan Indians still living. Unfortunately, the Man-Dan village was infected by smallpox which practically wiped out the entire tribe. Frank’s ancestor however, was away from the village at the time, working for a furniture maker. The furniture maker’s name was Samuel Gallagher. Following the custom of Indian laborers of that era, Frank took his employer’s last name as his own. One of the original Wooden Indians are on display in the Smithsonian Institute. The Gallagher’s continue the art of carving as their ancestor would want it; the old way – the right way – by hand. Due to the nature of authentic hand-crafted items, please allow for minor artistic differences. Aspen wood from Colorado is the preferred raw material for the creations of the Gallaghers. Natural wood does get a crack here and there on occasion. Please be assured it is a natural process and not a defect.
