Zuni carver, Daphne Quam, carved this colorful bobcat from bowlerite.    Bobcats are predator creatures, and Daphne carved a bundle of pink mussel shell arrowhead with two turquoise beads.  Bowlerite is a "stone" from reused bowling balls.  The creativity in Zuni Pueblo is boundless!

Size: 1.375" H x 1.75" L x .5" W

Bobcats are about twice the size from most house cats and are members of the lynx family.  They range from Mexico to Canada.  They are most active at twilight and are excellent hunters.

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.
