Jadeite is a green mineral said to have protective qualities that promote good health. A rich green-hued jadeite has been sweetly carved into an approximately 1 5/8" long, 1 3/8" wide and 1 1/2" tall mighty Bison by Armond Sandoval. Large eyes have an iridescence thanks to mother-of-pearl inlays. Horns are from shell. In Zuni Pueblo, a Buffalo Katsina comes with a Buffalo Maiden during ceremonial dances. Bison remind us to be thankful. Other pueblo cultures also give Buffalo dances and respect the buffalo as an animal associated with snow.
