Among many pueblos Bison are associated with snow. In these desert environments, winter snow means water for abundant crops in the summer. Lynn Quam carved this strong bovine from beautifully intricate pink dolomite striped with golds and yellows. With green turquoise horns and inlaid blue turquoise eyes this carving is about 2 1/4" tall and 3 1/2" long.
