Turquoise Buffalo by Tony Mackel

$ 75.00

A greenish blue turquoise buffalo with a prominent brown matrix and jet inlaid eyes. carved by Tony Mackel with its head to the ground. Tony has incised the buffalo's mane - pronouncing the large hump in the buffalo's back - also known as a dorsocervical fat pad, refers to a collection of fat accumulated on the back of the neck, between the shoulder blades. This is only our second buffalo carved by Tony - both have the incised curve above the eyes. The buffalo is not a 'traditional' subject for Zuni carvers though the medicine they bring is needed since the buffalo helps mankind to overcome all obstacles, builds emotional courage, brings abundance and initiates prayerfulness
