This beautiful sodalite water buffalo sits in a peaceful resting position, looking out with a soft gaze. The lines on his face are smooth and his soft eyes create a tender gaze that reaches the viewers. The cascading lines emphasize the crouching body and each body part. The buffalo’s face and tail are soft. The non- protruding horns make the buffalo a personable, non-threatening figure. The buffalo reminds a viewer of a crouching figure-hugging himself/herself, with the legs folded inward and the body curved. One can feel how comfortable and gracefully the buffalo rests. The colors of this sodalite buffalo also generate a softer impression. The buffalo shows lighter, creamier shades of blue and beige. Although the sodalite buffalo is personable, it also shows a sign in a shape of circulating rays, which gives the figure a sense of importance and status. The detailed work by the artist, for example dotted lines and eyelashes around the eyes and layering of the horns, give the sodalite buffalo a rich quality. Adorned with colors and exquisite detail, the sodalite water buffalo caries a strong charisma as an object of art. - (PF.2932)
