Air and Escape - Horses by Judy Larson
  Air and Escape  (2004)
Subject: Horses
Dimensions (inches): 24.5 x 15.25
Medium: Scratchboard
Description: Perhaps more than any other element, air, particularly in the form of wind, can spook a horse, even a savvy horse in the wild. Nevertheless, air provides protection to the wild horse, carrying smells of danger, and signaling the wild horse, giving it time to escape to safety.
The white buffalo also needed the same protection that air could provide, by alerting it to danger. In the world of the Plains Indians, the white buffalo was revered, and especially sacred. Deemed the most acceptable gift that could be obtained to offer to the Great Spirit, this rarest specimen of all buffalo, when encountered, was always killed for sacrifice. Ceremony and ritual accompanied the taking of a white buffalo, and, while different tribes used the skin in different ways, all of them prized the white buffalo for its powerful spirituality.
Today, when a white buffalo calf is born, it is visited and acknowledged by Native Americans as a symbol of the return of the buffalo and a return to the old ways. It is a sign that prayers are being answered, and that the people are becoming more spiritual; the people are coming back to the religion.
