This is a really beautiful carving of a water buffalo. The form of the animal has been perfectly captured by the artist. You can see the hand tool marks on the sculpture, This is not a modern sculpture. The carving measures 4" long and 1-1/4" wide. It is about 2" tall. The stone is most likely obsidian. Amazingly this piece weighs exactly 100 grams. No chips or cracks. The buffalo is in excellent condition.
