By Lewis Malie

Animal: Bushytail, Material: Antler
This offering is sold.
This small yet powerful bushytail (Coyote, Wolf or Fox) is carved out of antler by Lewis Malie, who is from the greater Laate family of Zuni carvers. It has an energetic presence, caught in a pose just before pouncing on something fun. The texture of the antler and the delicate incising lines gives depth to the fur coat. This incredible carving measures about 1 5/8" tall, 2" wide by 1 1/2" deep, with drilled eyes.
