This offering is sold.
A super cool bighorn sheep or ram carved of an irresistibly smooth specimen of earthy jasper with turquoise inlaid eyes by Chris Sandoval, carver Melvin Sandoval's son. Chris incised the horns for nice detail. About 2 1/8" long and 1 3/8" tall. Did you know a pair of horns might weight up to 30 pounds? The males have larger, curved horns.
