Although not specifically a Southwest Indian icon, wherever there were prairies and plains there were buffalo.
This sleek example has the detailed muzzle and head characteristic of this artist, as well as a realistic-yet-abstract form that is true to the animal.
Despite being simplified in form, this piece beautifully evokes the massive weight and power of the buffalo.
Colorful, natural parrot feathers, beads, and turquoise blue eyes enliven the muted markings of the alabaster.
A table-sized carving that honors this King of the Plains with beauty and respect.
