This is an amazing, hand carved, multi stone, 9 buffalo fetish necklace. Masterfully crafted by famed Navajo stone carver Jefferson Howe. Strung on a 21" necklace of pen shell and turquoise color heishi. Each buffalo measures approximately 1" by 1/2". As the Navajo fetish legend goes, if the artist doesn't feel the spirit of the animal in the stone, it is discarded and a new carving is started. This is how the powerful spirit of the buffalo is passed to the owner of the fetish.
