A stealthy Owl in flight, carved by Brian Yatsattie, with inlaid jet eyes sharply focused on its target. Carved from bumblebee jasper which can be found in Indonesia and is associated with volcanic activity. The bright orange and yellow bands are thanks to the presence of sulfur crystals. The fierce guardian measures about 2" long, 1" wide by 2" tall. A suitable carving for pocket or pouch travel.
Fire agate gemstone deposits formed during the Tertiary Period, when geological conditions hosted massive volcanic activity. A shimmering iridescence known as the Schiller effect is caused by alternating layers of silica and iron oxide within the agate. They diffract and allow light to pass through and form a color interference within the stone’s structure, causing the fire effect for which it is named.
A mind-blowing and high-grade fire agate specimen from Mexico is now a glorious Frog. Stunning iridescent colors like red, orange-brown and green, similar to opal, formed within this approximate 1 1/4" long, 2" wide and 1" tall collector's piece. Brian Yatsattie is an incredible carver bringing forth amazing creatures from the most excellent natural materials available.
Since bodies of water, such as ponds, streams and lakes cool off as weather conditions change to a colder environment, many fish seek to fatten up in the autumn months. No longer is it their concern to keep cool from the summer's heat, but to hunt prey in waters that may have been too hot before.
Adeptly moving about, prolific and collectible carver Brian Yatsattie's masterful mosaic fish or perhaps a trout, is in hunting mode. It navigates it watery home via drilled eyes. A stunning mosaic of turquoise, shell segments and jet paste are gorgeously overlaid on a bed of abalone. The shimmering abalone side also has inlays of jet paste and shell pieces. The hits of red-orange shell along the top of this approximate 5 5/8" long, 2" tall and 1" wide with curvature, fish are fantastically colorful. This water creature is fabulous viewed from either side.
Where there is a Dragonfly, there is water. Ask Zunis about a dragonfly (Shumak'olo:wa in the Zuni language) and they will tell you that a dragonfly is the messenger who carries prayers to Spirit World. The double-winged form of a dragonfly is sometimes referred to as the “Pueblo Cross.”
Bursting forth with colors like turquoise-blue, navy blue, yellow, lavender, varying shades of green and golden orange-brown, this one-of-a-kind dragonfly surfite necklace and earrings set is by Brian Yatsattie. He is a prolific, collectible and brilliant Zuni artist. Surfite is a jazzy, recycled material by way of retired surf boards. Each insect is masterfully carved, while the individual surfite beads are uniquely barrel-shaped. The center and larger dragonfly is about 2 1/2" long and 2" wide, while the smaller dragonflies measure approximately 2 1/4" long and 1 3/4" wide. They're strung with surfite and turquoise beads on a 27" long necklace. The dragonfly earrings hang at about 2 1/2" long and 1 1/2" wide.
Bringing good dragonfly medicine, Brian's refreshing necklace and earrings set will be a favorite in any jewelry collection, easy to wear everyday.
We are super stoked to offer this totally rad Turtle that Brian Yatsattie carved from contemporary surfite. Surfite is an up-cycled byproduct of making custom surf boards. It is the accumulation of colored resins used to "glass" the boards. These colorful resins build up into multicolored slabs. This cool reptile is about 3 1/4" long, 2 5/8" wide and 5/8" tall, and has sweet eyes of inlaid jet.
