This beautiful white marble buffalo was carved by Jonas Hustito. We love the gentleness of the face with turquoise eyes. The rough around the neck and head is detailed, as are horns, hooves and tail. The offering bundle has a turquoise offering bundle with heishi and turquoise.

Buffalo, or American bison, roamed the plains in the millions from Northern Mexico into Canada before colonization. Buffalo are sacred to many Native American people, and the white buffalo especially so. They provided so much the people needed: food, clothing, leather to line tipis and make parfleches which are beautifully painted rawhide containers, tools, and so much more. There has been success in recent years to bring the buffalo back to the plains, especially to Native American tribes on the plains.
