Bernard Laiwekate: Watermelon Serpentine, Horse

Bernard Laiwekate: Watermelon Serpentine, Horse


Watermelon serpentine is a unique type of stone that gets its name from its striking resemblance to the texture and coloration of the fruit. The vibrant hues ranging from shades of green to reddish-brown add depth and character to this remarkable carving. 

Horse (Du:shi): Horse brought power to the People. After the horse arrived on the Plains, people were able to move faster with heavier burdens, they could hunt game more efficiently, and they became fiercer warriors. Horse affords mobility that gives us freedom and power, but not the power that weighs us down. We need to be mindful that the most positive relationships are cooperative ones. All participants must respect the power of others with acceptance and tolerance. Our relationship to Horse differs from relationships between man and any other animal because it is a relationship requiring a deep understanding, without which the strength and benefits of Horse are inaccessible.
