This is a notebook cover that sold at this year’s ‘Cowboy Crossings’ exhibit at the National Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma City. The decoration on the cover is a design that shows a ram’s horns entangled in vinework, but the ram is dead and what has issued from its skull is new life. Easter lilies are springing forth from the dead ram’s eye sockets. This symbolism is a display of new birth, of hope, and of grace. Leland Hensley made the rawhide braided pen that is included and Dave Alderson fashioned the silver and gold snap fastener. I enjoy this type of case work a great deal.
