Married Zuni couple, Abby Quam and Clayton Panteah, work together in making their carvings.  This tijilite carved swan has an inlaid Sleeping Beauty turquoise heartline and eyes.  As you can see, it is very graceful.

Size: 1.75" H x 2.25" L x .75" W

Swans mate for life, although there have been cases of "divorce".  They are fierce protectors of their families and have been known to even attack humans who threaten their babies.

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.
