2020 is the Year of the Rat in the Chinese calendar.  Cody Nastacio carved this rat from white marble and inlaid blue turquoise eyes.  He added etched detail as hair.  It's a very nice rat.

Size: 1.5" H x 2.25" L x .75" W

Humans are so packed into urban areas that rats are seen as pests.  But, anyone who has know a rat, or known someone who keeps one as a pet, knows they are sweet, friendly and very smart.  Wild rats are cunning, know where to find food and have an excellent sense of direction and navigation.

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.
