This Full Moon Rising - Men's Wallet features the artwork of Canadian Indigenous Artist, Andy Everson. This unique work of art represents a full moon rising into the night sky after winning the right to this placement during a battle against the half moon. Emboss printed with white ink on a thick black faux leather material and then stitched around the outer edge of the moon, this wallet is simple yet detailed and spectacular.
The deep embossed printing and fine detailed stitching make it a unique one of a kind, as well as a fantastic gift.

Message from the artist about this piece:
In Kwakwaka’wakw tradition, the Full and Half Moons are seen to battle for the right to show themselves at night. In one particular dance, the Full Moon and the Half Moon come out on the dance floor making noise and pointing to the moon shape above their respective masks. The singers, realizing that they are fighting over who should show themselves suggest that they have a dance contest. After a hilarious bought of dancing, the winner is declared by the assembled guests and can journey across the sky that evening.
About the artist:
Andy Everson was born in Comox B.C. and named Nagedzi after his grandfather, Chief Andy Frank of the K'omoks First Nation. His cultural interests lay with both his K'omoks and Kwakwaka'wakw ancestors and are expressed through dancing, singing and art. To further his career, Andy has gone on to complete his Master's degree in anthropology. From early self-taught lessons, Andy has tried to follow in the footsteps of his Kwakwaka'wakw relatives in creating bold and unique representations that remain rooted in the age old traditions of his ancestors.
This is my second wallet with this design. I continually get comments on it, and it has stood up well, over time.
