Verdite Buffalo Dancers by Florentino Martinez

$ 425.00

A verdite carving by Florentino Martinez depicting two animated buffalo social dancers with a rattle in one dancer's hand and a zigzag thunder bolt shaped arrow in the other's. One dancer's face appears below the mask - with concave carved eye sockets that create a shadow and the other dancer's face is hidden by hair - this could in fact be the female dancer. Both dancers are inlaid to a matching rounded triangular shaped base of verdite. This carving has been sitting in a box since 2010 - we know that since Florentino signed and dated the piece! The movement of the participants illustrate the purpose of the dance - expressing thankfulness; calling on the spirit of the buffalo for healing, strength & prosperity.
Artist: Florentino Martinez (signed)
Size: Including Base: 2-1/8 in. long x 1-1/2 in. wide x 2 in. tall
