Onyx Buffalo by Andres Lementino - Zuni Fetish

$ 220.00

A large cream, gray, brown and golden ocher colored onyx buffalo with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Andres Lementino. Andres has inlaid a lone Zuni sun face to the buffalo's left side - utilizing bits of turquoise, clam shell, sodalite, apple coral and jet. 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 the buffalo is carved to help mankind overcome obstacles, build up emotional courage & physical strength to bring abundance & initiate prayerfulness.
