This adorable armadillo is on its way to who knows where? Dana carved it from Picasso marble and did an amazing job of engraving the back...and we especially love the tail! And could ignore the alert ears? It has inlaid turquoise eyes too.
Size: 1" H x 1.875" L x .675" W
Armadillo means "little armored one" in Spanish, and it looks like it wears its own tank! Its first defense when threatened is to run, and it can be quick. The next defense is to roll into a ball so the bony armor keeps it safe. It has long claws that it uses to build its den underground and to dig for snacks. It models nonviolence and is successful at being a peaceful warrior.
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.
