This custom guitar strap was cut from a premium latigo leather hide. The painting is of a hawk rising holding Tibetan prayer flags. Behind the bird are branches from a Nevada Bristlecone Pine Tree. On the back of the strap (painted to be seen on the shoulder from behind) is the earth with the wearer's name burnt underneath in Chinese calligraphy. The musician's children and fiance's names are also burnt into the tail of the strap.
Not pictured (because I had yet to burn in the quote when these pictures were taken), but also on the tail are the words: "Go instead where there is no path".
