This funny little prairie dog was made by Charles Martinez, Jr. from serpentine. The fur is highly detailed, as are the paws and cute little face. It has inlaid turquoise eyes. There is a crack in the stone that goes almost all the way around. We tried to break it and couldn't, so we are pretty sure it is fine. But, we reduced the price anyway from $45 to $30. Hope it finds a good home!
Size: 1" H x 1.75" L x .75" W
Prairie dogs used to be all over the plains of the United States. While their territory is reduced, we are happy they are still there and we dream of the time when they once again roam the plains...well almost. What we love about them is that they all come out of their underground homes before the sun comes up and raise their arms in welcome as it rises.
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.
