Rickson Kallestewa has carved this fabulous Mountain-lion
(puma, panther or cougar) from one portion of lovely alabaster. Its tail is unforgettably presented. Between its front paws is an offering bowl that is decorated with an incised flute player and raincloud element. Inside are blue Corn
kernels. On its back is a small point offering of abalone. The mouth, nostrils, eyes and claws are incised and darkened with brown paste. About 5 3/8" long, 1 1/4" wide and 2 5/8" tall.
