A leading member of the Ute Tribe passed away and it was important to the family that 1.) he has a teepee, 2.) it had the correct tribal colors, and 3.) it had a place where incense sticks could be burnt.
The goal of the design was to emphasize the prime color red, hence the India Red granite and red teepee. The hole in the center represents the hole left by his departure and it allows the smoke from the incense sticks to penetrate to the ‘other side’ (heaven). A neat little bit of symbolism there.
The incense sticks will slide inside the ‘poles’ that support the teepee, which the family loved. The teepee will be powder-coated stainless steel with multiple layers. it will stand off the stone roughly 15″ and will be decorated with traditional teepee markings.
