Delvin Leekya carved this travertine bushytail out of travertine, also called Zuni rock, and inlaid bright turquoise eyes.  He made a carved pink mussel shell arrowhead and put a bit of green snail shell on top of the bundle.  It has a natural line on the right side of its eye, almost like a scar that has healed.  We all carry some kind of scars, either internal or external.  This bushytail tells us that scars always heal with the right kind of medicine.

Size: 1.5" H x 2.75" L x .75" W

Wolves, coyotes, and foxes all look the same in the distance.  In Zuni there is a word that translates into "bushytail" in English.  You get to determine what this carving looks like to you!

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.
