~Cowboy~

From Vaquero to Rodeo the term Cowboy has a much longer history than most know.  Between the 1500 & 1700’s The Spanish taught the indigenous people of Mexico how to ride their horses and herd their cattle. This hard work required a rugged personality and the Mexican vaqueroes became legendary for their roping skills and horsemanship. It is said that they would only dismount for the chance to dance with a pretty girl.  As time went on more & more Americans adopted a cowboy lifestyle merging the two cultures. Even the word rodeo comes from the Spanish word Rodear.

~Bull, Long Horn~

I remember my first job working on a beef farm…the powerful bulls snorting in the cold morning air…their long horns like great dawn sabers…ready…stoic…solid…yet with the great beating of a warm and kind mammal heart resonating its low rhythms to the pasture below, the sky above and its herd to the sides. Let us never forget the respect that such animals deserve for their gifts and sacrifices to humankind.

Because of its virility, power, & regal presence, the bull has been a symbol of divine power, agriculture, sport & respect in many cultures.

~Arrow~

An arrow knows where it will land the moment it is let loose. Once the archer releases, there is no second chance. At birth we all begin a journey with our inner arrow guiding the way, so follow your arrow, feel the wind in your hair & enjoy the ride!

~Lightning bolt~

"Because when that realization, that pure immense spark comes crashing down on you… it will light your heart and soul on fire with electric love, leaving you forever changed."

 

After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
