Stone of the Month 当月赏石 October

“Tatanka” (Bison)


The name of this figure stone from Sagit County, Washington can be traced to the Native American name for bison. The bison is resting with its legs folded beneath its body and its head facing to the left. The base, carved by Edd Kuehn, represents a prairie environment, home of these large western mammals. The stone is 21 cm (8.25 inches) wide, 16.5 cm (6.5 inches) tall, and 8.9 cm (3.5 inches) deep. It was collected by and is owned by Edd Kuehn.
