Picture Jasper Horse by Douglas Martza

$ 95.00

An animated muted yellow ocher colored picture jasper bucking horse with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Douglas Martza - to balance quite well on its simplified front legs. Douglas has added a simple bundle around the girth of the horse with sinew featuring amber and turquoise beads and melon shell heishi. Horses buck when energetic and playful, mad, annoyed, or in pain. Horses were once an integral part of tribal cultures, honored in objects, stories, songs, and ceremonies. Native Americans viewed the horse as a sanctified blessing that should be protected at all times. The Zuni also believe the horse has healing powers
