Jet Carving in Inlay by Native American Artist. See below for more information.
This little jet bison has been hand-carved by a Zuni artist, and is signed on the bottom: "SS". The sun face inlay on either side represents the high regard of the Zuni for the impact of the sun on agricultural output. A buffalo symbolizes endurance, and provides great emotional courage to all. With inlaid turquoise eyes as well as the sun faces, this bison is 1 3/4" tall, 2 3/4" long and 7/8" wide. All pieces made by Native Americans are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
