Zuni carver, Delvin Leekya, carved this long and lean bushytail from travertine, also called Zuni rock. He inlaid bright blue turquoise eyes and carved a slightly open mouth. It has a mother of pear carved arrowhead, with a smaller pink mussel shell arrowhead on top. We love the face...there is just something about it...
Size: 1.125" H x 3.75" L x .75" W
