Onyx Resting Deer by Douglas Martza

$ 105.00

A large green, cream, yellow umber, and muted red sienna colored/veined onyx resting buck with turquoise inlaid eyes and eight point rack carved by Douglas Martza. Douglas has added a lovely bundle to the top of the buck's back with sinew featuring a dark mother-of-pearl arrowhead. There are lovely beads place on top of the arrowhead - four are onyx, three are variscite with two small coral beads placed at the end. For the Native tribes of North America, the deer is a messenger, an animal of power, and a totem representing sensitivity, intuition and gentleness. The Zuni in particular believe the deer represents our ancestors so it is always a joyous day to see one and it's also a very significant occurrence.
