Graceful Serpentine Bird
This graceful serpentine bird was made by Jeff Yunie of Zuni Pueblo. It has a slightly curved beak and a long neck.
Size: 2.25" H x ,75" L x .5" W
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.
Zuni Fossilized Walrus Ivory Cockatoo
There is no mistaking this cockatoo carving for any other bird. Derrick Kaamasee carved it out of fossilized walrus ivory and inlaid red coral eyes. The feather and feet details are very fine.
Size: 1.75" H x .75" L x .5" W
We mostly see Cockatoos as pets here in the United States, but in Australia they are wild and fly free along with hundreds of parakeets. At home they are liberated.
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.
