Native American Navajo Fine Etched Horsehair Wedding Vase with Buffalo – HHF-4791

Etched Horsehair Wedding Vase with Buffalo

The Wedding Vase is an ancient vessel still used in traditional Pueblo wedding ceremonies. One spout of the vessel represents the husband and the other the wife. The looped handle represents the unity achieved with marriage. The space created within the loop represents the circle of life. In the traditional ceremony, the couple drink nectar (prepared by the medicine man) from the spouts to represent the blending of their lives. The pot is a reflection of the ancient rite. This Laguna wedding vase is encircled with buffalo. The buffalo is a symbol of good medicine.
