Zuni carver, Michael Coble, carved this serpentine snake and inlaid turquoise eyes.  It is very life like and looks like it could slither away at any moment.  It has a very smooth matt polish.  The mouth and ears are detailed which can be seen when it is turned over.

Size: .625" H x 3.25" L x 1.625" W

Snakes are strong, agile, and fast.  Sinuous in their movements, they are only seen when they want to be seen.   They remind us to be flexible no matter what is happening around us, to be aware, and ready to move when necessary. They shed their skins as they grow without sentiment for what they leave behind. 

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.
