Marble Buffalo by Andres Lementino

$ 150.00

An outstanding maroon and gray/cream veined buffalo with turquoise inlaid eyes, carved by Andres Lementino. Andres has inlaid his double zuni sun sign on the left side of the buffalo inlaid with bits of turquoise, jet, clam, gold-lip and abalone. 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. The buffalo is not a traditional subject for Zuni carvers though the medicine it brings is needed & therefore it is carved since the buffalo helps mankind overcome obstacles, builds emotional courage & physical strength & brings abundance & initiates prayerfulness.
Artist: Andres Lementino (signed)
