Enrike Leekya comes from an accomplished line of Zuni Pueblo artists, descending from famous fetish carver Leekya Deyuse (d). Enrike's father is carver Freddie Leekya and his mother is award-winning jeweler April Unkestine.
Enrike's Zuni travertine Bobcat (or wildcat) is about 3" long, 1" wide and 2 1/2" tall. This exquisite variety of travertine is found in the Zuni area. Turquoise inlaid eyes are sweet as is its turquoise nose overlay. A segment of natural branch red coral and a carved turquoise point comprise the offering bundle.
Christopher Sandoval, Zuni-San Felipe
Gorgeously green banded malachite is a mineralogical cousin of turquoise. It's said to help open one's heart and has healing properties by absorbing a variety of pollutants. Zunis have traditionally carved with malachite. Christopher Sandoval's beautifully shrewd Bobcat (or wildcat) ascertains through lovely turquoise inlaid eyes. Through this bobcat's slightly-hunched and discerning posture, we're taught to think before acting, and that balanced independent thought is necessary in our lives. About 2 1/2" long, 1 3/4" wide and 2" tall.
Brion Hattie Sr.'s Bobcat of leopard jasper is staying alert, keeping its eyes of inlaid turquoise fixed on a distant point and ready to move if necessary. With a nicely bobbed tail and an offering bundle of a gold lip shell point plus turquoise, this feline is about 3 5/8" long and 2 1/8" tall.
