Lynn Quam carved this wolf out of sodalite and inlaid turquoise eyes and a heartline. The solalite resembles a clear night sky with the moonlight reflecting off the clouds. It is easy to imagine this wolf looking up at the moon and getting ready to howl. The tail wraps around the body a bit. This wolf has definitely had enough to eat!

Wolves are intelligent, resourceful creatures that live in their own communities called packs. They have excellent communication skills and are protective of one another. The leaders of their communities are called “alpha” and are usually males and females, although there are known to be alphas that are only females (yay to the matriarchy!). The alphas are the only wolves in the pack who breed, and they also eat first. They are the strongest and most intelligent wolves of the group.
FOX Wolves, coyotes and foxes all look the same in the distance. In Zuni there is a word that translates into "bushytail" in English. This bushytail is a fox. Foxes are playful, clever, quick, and protective of their young. They also mate for life, and are indigenous to every continent except Antarctica.
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.
