Zuni carver, Colin Weeka, carved this mountain lion with detailed fur and whiskers, and inlaid turquoise eyes. It is walking on a well defined rock. It is impressive that there he carved the space between the belly of the big cat and the rock!

In Zuni Pueblo, mountain lions are the guardians of the north, which is where wisdom lives. They are sleek hunters who are primarily solitary predators. Full of grace, they move through life silently and with great power until they want you to hear them.
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.
