Ron Laahty, Zuni Fetish Carver
This is a special piece. I've had one other buffalo I liked as much. It is marvelously carved from a material that is rarely used, Labradorite, a type of feldspar. The material has a wonderful iridescence, the colors shifting between greens, blues, and yellows.
The animal has eyes and beautifully crafted horns of mother of pearl.
Like the last really cool buffalo I had, this was extremely difficult to capture in a photo.
...and, I'd like to keep it for myself!
Ron is part of the spectacularly talented extended family that includes: Ricky Laahty; Lewis Malie; Ruben & Estban Najera; Pernell, Max, & Willard Laate; Elton & Derrick Kaamasee; Destry Suitza; Calvin & Colin Weeka; Jerrold Lahaleon, Dannette Laate, and David Chavez Jr - too mention only a few!
Remember to check the dimensions - the photos are extreme close-ups.
Signed: Ron Laahty (honestly, if you didn't KNOW this, it would be next to impossible to figure out). It also might be marked Zuni and have a date but they are unintelligible.
