Animal: Bison, Material: Opalite
This offering is sold.
Many Indigenous cultures regard a white buffalo (Bison) as a blessing and a sign that things will eventually turn out for the best. Abby Quam Panteah carved a turquoise-eyed bovine from an inspiring opalite, which can either be a cultured opalescent glass or naturally occurring in nature. Glass opals are designated by placing them against a dark background and they'll appear blue in color. The luminescent quality of this opalite celebrates a white buffalo's rare and natural beauty. Hold on to this carving and remember never give up, stay strong and be thankful for the smallest of things in life. About 1" long, 5/8" wide and 1" tall.
