Animal: Elk, Material: Found Stone
This offering is sold.

This Elk bull and cow pair by Salvador Romero exudes strength and companionship, carved of two lovely and unique found stones. During mating season, male and female elk come together.  When mating season is over, Elk congregate with their own gender. By forming a herd of the same sex Elk has comfort, strength, safety, and the opportunity to leave competition behind. This carving celebrates that special time when the herds mix. Salvador attached a medley of colorful beads in his offering bundle, given in thanks for an elk's medicine. About 4 1/2" long, 2" wide and 2 3/4" tall.
