Hohokam carved red basalt effigy big horn sheep ca. 650 ad. No Restoration, In as found condition with excellent ground deposits. The Hohokam seemed to use the red basalt for stone ceremonial effigies and objects but the red basalt was harder and rarer for them to find than the black basalt. This is a fine carved effigy of a big horn sheep which the Hohokam prized due to most likely how hard they were to hunt and kill. I would imagine you were at the top of the hunting game to bag a big horn. You can see the head, horns and tail, it carved flat on bottom. It is approx: 3-1/4"long X 2"high X 2"wide. A "Certificate Of Authenticity, Release and Disclosure" Statement will be provided. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BUYING OR MAKING A OFFER PLEASE EMAIL ME TIM JONES AT tejones0433@msn.com
