This sweet one-eyed squirrel was carved from serpentine, quite possible by a Navajo carver. It has one inlaid turquoise eye and an offering bundle of heishi and turquoise colored beads. The tail is extremely fluffy! It has been well loved for many years in the private collection of the owner of Gathering Tribes, Pennie. She can't remember who the carver is.
Size: 1" H x 2" L x .675" W
Squirrels are little comedians! Everyone enjoys watching them teasing one another and other creatures such as birds, dogs and cats. They have also been eaten by many, and their furs used to make bags, hats, and more.
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.
