This Picasso marble mouse stands tall and brave! Zuni carver, Lance Cheama, carved it from a stunning piece of Picasso marble. It has so much detail from the textured fur, the tiny little hands and feet, the long tail up the back, and the face with turquoise inlaid eyes, and the delicate ears. This little mouse is so cool!
Size: 1.625" H x .75" L x .625" W
Like many creatures, mice have learned to live and benefit from living with and around humans, although they also do quite well outside of human communities. There is a story among Hopi about a warrior mouse who protected the chickens from a vulture – a very brave mouse indeed!
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.
