Chrysocolla Horse by Fernando Laiwakete

$ 55.00

A blue, maroon, sage and grass green chrysocolla horse with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Fernando Laiwakete. Fernando has added his fantastic offering bundle to the top of the horse's back - featuring a mussel shell carved bird at the center, surrounded by turquoise and lapis beads, apple coral and melon shell heishi. Fernando has also added a small turquoise, gold-lip, and jet featured Zuni sun face to the horse's left side so there is lots to look at with colors that move the eyes all around the carving. To the Zuni, the Sun face represents prosperity, happiness, peace, hope, optimism, and positive energy. The horse is a universal symbol of freedom without restraint - symbolizing speed and strength & the Zuni believe the horse has healing powers.
