One can't help but wonder who the recipient is of this wolf's communication.  Is it another wolf, the moon, or you, perhaps?  Juana Homer carved it from dendritic serpentine with soft greens and pinks.  "Dendritic" refers to another mineral which formed and resembles flowers, stars, or plants.  The eyes are inlaid jet.  The offering bundle is a jet arrowhead with red coral and turquoise on top.  It comes to us from a collection we found during our move that we purchased 15 years ago!

Size: 2.5" L x .5" W x 1.5" H

Wolves are communal and live together in groups.  For some tribes, wolves are the guardians of the east, the direction of the new day, new beginnings, and new life.  The are extremely protective of their young and one another.  Wolves are also good communicators.  They have to be for the safety of the pack.

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.
