Steven Natachu carved this fox from jasper with inlaid turquoise eyes. The bushy fox tail is inlaid with chrysocolla in cuprite, jet, mother of pearl, and catlinite. The paws and face are detailed, and it has an intent look on its face, just like a fox would.
Size: .75" H x 2.5" L x 1" W
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.
