So cool!! Hand Carved White Raven Bone bead - with Onyx for eyes!
This incredible bead is truly unique. The intricate carving was done by hand, making each unique in their own way!!
These are the white ravens of legend and lore... bringing in tides of the weather!
The material comes from domestic cow or buffalo bone; both are used as draft animals (for example, to plow muddy rice paddies) and are consumed as food. They are highly valued and are not dispatched only for their horns or bones; these have an incredibly small value compared with that of a living animal. Water buffalo and Ox bone are obtained after death, and since the cultures from which they are attained believe in utilizing the whole animal, nothing goes to waste, and thus the animal is honored more fully.
