Jimmy Yawakia's elevated and wide-winged Eagle (or Hawk who is little brother to eagle in the Zuni way) is carved from gold lip shell.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this eagle fetish will go to the Zuni Eagle Sanctuary. Please see our resources page for more information on the sanctuary.

Carved from rich deep blue sodalite with many interesting inclusions this bird by Cheryl Beyuka is truly something special. The graceful sweep of the overall shape is accented by the beautiful necklace of turquoise, clam shell heishe, and natural red coral. This pretty bird is about 4" long, 3" wide, and 2" tall with eyes of inlaid coral. A bird rich in happiness as it is in color, deep happiness.

As a member of the Parrot Clan, Dan Simplicio Jr. is drawn to carving these amazing birds, as seen with his spectacular serpentine parrot. This fetish is the largest piece we've ever seen from him.
This feathered friend views its world through red coral and gold lip shell inlaid eyes. Its beak is well-polished and lovely. This fabulously realistic parrot has incredibly carved wing detail and will bring much happiness to any place upon which it rests.
Dan signed his traditional Zuni name on the underside "Tse Wa Da" and inlaid a red coral heartline or arrow.
It's perched at about 5 1/2" tall, is 2" wide and 4" deep. We don't see many carvings from him very often. Don't miss this collectible and special carving. Extra shipping charges may apply.
