Bovine With Turned Head

By Lynn Quam

Animal: Bison, Material: Turquoise
This offering is sold.
Lynn Quam's small turquoise Bison, with fossilized ivory horns and jet inlaid eyes, is carved from one piece of turquoise. We love how Lynn carved this bovine with a turned head. About 1 3/4" long and 1" tall. While not a traditional fetish subject for the Zunis, all animals have “medicine” and Bison reminds us of abundance and prayer.
