White Marble Buffalo by Andres Lementino

$ 250.00

cA large plump white marble buffalo carved by Andres Lementino with his signature double Zuni inlaid to the left side of the buffalo - composed of turquoise, coral and clam shell inlaid 'sun rays', with turquoise,an apple coral, jet and abalone shell inlaid sun face. The Sun face is an ancient symbol in Zuni culture, representing the sacred Sun Father. The symbol's round motif depicts the Sun with a forehead split down the middle to reflect the eternal balance between sunrise and sunset. To the Zuni, the Sunface represents prosperity, happiness, peace, hope, optimism, and positive energy. The buffalo is not a 'traditional' subject for Zuni carvers though the medicine it brings is needed since the buffalo helps mankind to overcome all obstacles, builds emotional courage, brings abundance & initiates prayerfulness.
