Vince Chavez's Zuni travertine Bison has blue green eyes of inlaid azurite. While not a traditional fetish subject for the Zunis, all animals have “medicine” and Bison reminds us of abundance and prayer. This light colored bison has a shaggy mane texturized with fine incising with a matte finish while the rest of the carving has a smooth polish. Vince captured the tail mid-flick adding a sense of movement. The bison measures about 3 1/2" long, 1 3/4" wide by 2 5/8" tall.
Joel Pajarito, Kewa (Santo Domingo)
Native American symbols of power, mobility and continuance of life adorn Joel Pajarito's spectacular tufa cast jewel box. Bison (or buffalo), Horse, sacred Corn, hand elements signifying unity, sprawling teepees, a magnificent head-dressed rider, in addition to important celestial stars, moon, sun and grand raincloud motifs are tufa cast from sterling silver. This amazing jewelry process involves cutting a tufa stone in half, smoothing out both surface sides, carving a sprue hole on top, then skillfully etching out designs, where molten sterling silver was poured in. Joel painstakingly and thoughtfully fortified every surface of this luxurious and museum-quality 2-piece lid with caddy. He also inlaid stunning sky-blue Kingman turquoise and brilliant red coral cabochons. This ultra-gorgeous box is approximately 3" long, 2 3/8" deep and 1 5/8" tall including cabochons, perfect for housing your most treasured keepsake. Signed by the artist.
