Faye Quandelacy carved this powerful white buffalo dancer from marble and etched black eyes and mouth.  The horns and rattle have been painted black.  It has a turquoise at the neck.  The fur on the buffalo hat and the bottom of the kilt is engraved.  

We are very said to share that Faye Quandelacy passed away on September 24, 2022.  This carving may have been one of the last several that she made.  Our condolences go to her family and all those who loved her. 

Size: 3" H x 1" L x .75" W

The buffalo dance honors the buffalo which gives the people so much, and, the white buffalo is especially sacred.  

Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal.   Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
