Ben Kaamasee carved this family of three owls from Picasso marble, and inlaid gold lip mother of pearl and jet eyes. There is so much detail in the feathers and the stump they are standing on. These little owls have a 360 degree view.

Owls are birds of the night who fly silently with excellent vision. They are predators who hunt at night and sleep during the day. They, as are most raptors, communicate between this world and the next.
Traditionally, Zuni carvings are symbolically fed cornmeal. Each Zuni fetish comes in a box with a descriptive card and a tiny bit of corn meal to tide them over until they reach you.
