Brandon Phillips carved this owl from cedar. It has turquoise inlaid eyes, and a wonderfully fancy beak that is inlaid with jet, mother of pearl, and turquoise. It has an inlaid turquoise dot in the center with etched lines in the cardinal directions, and lines radiating between each one. The claws and feathers are also detailed. It wants to know hoo hoo will it fly home with? Maybe you!
Size: 2.25" H x 1" L x 1" W
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.
