Jayne carved this Cosmic Owl from black and white banded onyx and inlaid turquoise eyes. The wings are inlaid with images of the universe: the moon, stars, and a spiral inlaid into crushed turquoise. The stones include jasper, turquoise, serpentine, and shells. Wow!

Owls are birds of the night who fly silently with excellent vision. They are predators who hunt at night and sleep during the day. They, as do most raptors, communicate between this world and the next.
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.
