Zuni carver, Delvin Leekya, carved this long and lean bushytail from travertine, also called Zuni rock.  He inlaid bright blue turquoise eyes and carved a slightly open mouth.  It has a mother of pear carved arrowhead, with a smaller pink mussel shell arrowhead on top.  We love the face...there is just something about it...

Size: 1.125" H x 3.75" L x .75" W

Wolves, coyotes and foxes all look the same in the distance.  In Zuni there is a word that translates into "bushytail" in English.  You get to determine what this carving looks like to you!

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.
