This soaring songbird was made by respected Zuni elder and carver, Lena Boone. It has inlaid serpentine and pink mussel shell rectangles and inlaid turquoise eyes. It has been in Pennie's collection (the owner of Gathering Tribes) for many years and has been well loved. It feels very good in the hand!
Size: 2" H x 1.125" W x 3.5" L
Birds are messengers between this world and the spirit world. When song birds sing it raises the spirits of all who hear them. To wake up in the morning to the sounds of song birds is a blessing that raises our spirits!
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.
