Description: 
Plains Indian men carved ladles and spoons to honor important animals. Here, the artist incorporated a horse’s head, mane and neck into the handle, while the cup acts as the body of the horse. The graceful lines of this ladle imply that the horse is running. This ladle was carved from a buffalo horn that was steamed and bent into shape.
