This buckle is representative of his work, done with great care, everything clearly defined and perfectly executed.

The Ram is a game animal and is said to have the power to cure ill and bring rain. The Ram Kachina is a rare kachina that only appears in the kiva or at night dances held in late February through March. Buckle measures 3" by 2" and will fit 1 1/2" belt.
