By Dinah Gasper

Animal: Ram, Material: Angelite
This offering is sold.
Dinah Gasper, daughter of Teddy Weahkee and granddaughter of Old Man Acque, carved this sweet yet steadfast ram from angelite, a beautiful glacier blue stone from Peru. Ram represents strength and authority. Dinah has given this ram nostrils of inlaid turquoise, so it can breath, and eyes of the same inlaid turquoise. About 1 5/8" long and 7/8" tall this carving carries Dinah's sterling silver hallmark tag, a practice she still employs as an homage to her late husband Peter Gasper Sr.
