This pig has such a sweet face! Delvin Leekya carved it from travertine and inlaid turquoise eyes. The face is so expressive and it seems to look right into our eyes. The little twisty tail is one of our favorite parts! The hooves are made from pink mussel shell.
Size: 1.5" H x 2.675" L x 1" W
Pigs are very smart and are like humans in many ways. Poor pigs, they've got such a bad rap. But, if you ever have the good fortune to get to know a pig, you will find them to be delightful friends. We know a woman who had a pet pig named Lassie. Lassie lived in her home when she was a baby. The woman taught Lassie to play hide-and-seek, and Lassie won every single time! When they would go for walks in the park, with Lassie in her walking harness, people would ask what kind of dog she was. Yes, she was that adorable.
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.
