Reversible Crane, Zuni Sunface, Pueblo, Raincloud & Corn Sculpture

By Herbert Him, Sr.

This offering is sold.
Holding a place of honor, a turquoise-eyed crane and a Zuni Sunface are harmonious in a reversible sculpture from marble by carving great Herbert Him, Sr. Either side of this approximate 3" tall, 4 1/4" wide and 1 5/8" deep piece shows the pueblo's little etched doorways, windows and adobe mud bricks. The Sunface is inlaid with turquoise, pipestone, mother-of-pearl and jet. Rich pipestone radiates from this symbol which represents the elements in balance. A small ladder reaches an inlaid turquoise, mother-of-pearl and pipestone raincloud with etched lightning bolts. Growing corn crawls up and over each side of this collectible masterpiece.
