Bison (Si:wolo) is especially important to the Plains Indians. These magnificent animals were the basis of their lifeway before they were hunted to extinction by the white man. While not a traditional fetish subject for the Zunis, all animals have “medicine” and Bison reminds us of abundance and prayer. Todd and Monica Etsate's peaceful Picasso marble Bison is about 1 7/8" long and 1 1/2" tall, with eyes of turquoise and horns of gold lip shell.
