Lynn Quam artfully carved this moon gazing coyote from sodalite which has the dark blues of the late night sky.  It has inlaid turquoise eyes and heartline, and the tail wraps around the body a bit.  It is easy to imagine this coyote looking up at the moon and getting ready to howl.  It has definitely had enough to eat!  It feels very good in the hand.

Size: 3.75" H x 1.5" L x .75" W 

Coyotes figure prominently in Native American history.  In some tribes, they are powerful creation beings who teach us by doing things that turn out wrong, or even disastrous.  Oftentimes, they have a humorous quality.  In their natural environment they live in packs, hunt together, and protect one another.  Once one hears them yipping at night it is never forgotten.

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.
