Devils claw - the craft aspect of this plant

                                         These are the claws that give the plant its name

As a child when my sister and I walked through the woods we were sometimes snagged by these beauties. Their tough claw like barbs can scrape and even draw blood. But now they are endangered. If you find them please keep this in mind.

First I want to invite you to Check out my salves made with this interesting plant with products you can buy on line or create yourself.

Also take a look at this link

And by all means should you find any and wish to create a sculpture,Check out some artful creations using these claws as scorpions and birds

Also here is another one made into a man

This one was on line for sale quite sometime back ~ a peacock~
