Carved Eagle on Buffalo Horn
This is a pair of beautiful decorative horns depicting an eagle protecting its young. Each horn is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art. The pair of arched horn tips are hand-carved in Laos from horns recovered from water buffalo that have been raised for food consumption. The concept for the design was created in Canada. The artists in Laos carefully select the horn that is best suited to fit the design. They then hand etch the finished design into the surface of the horn creating the details, color contrasts and depth. Each piece will have its own distinct shape, size and natural markings. Affixed to a wooden base, this representation of that magnificent bird measures 11-3/4" tall. Each horn weighs about 1 lb.
