Zuni carver, Peter Gasper, carved this old-style mountain lion from white marble with turquoise eyes. Since mountain lions are great hunters, he bundled it with a beautifully carved gold-lip mother or pearl arrowhead with clam shell heishi, turquoise, and coral. If you are on the hunt for something, this powerfully carving may help you.

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. 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.
