Zuni carver, Gabe Burns, carved this Mighty Tiny Mountain Lion from sandstone. The offering bundle is a white arrowhead, and it has geometric engravings on both sides, as well as detailed whiskers. The tail is over the back, as it is on many very old Zuni mountain lion carvings. Perfect for a leather pouch!
Size: .675" H x 1.375" L x .375" W
In Zuni Pueblo, mountain lions are the guardians of the north, which is where wisdom lives. They are sleek hunters who are primarily solitary predators, and in Zuni, they are the leaders of all of the hunting animals. Full of grace, they move through life silently and with great power until they want you to hear them.
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.
