Horned Lizards are like little time travelers from the Jurassic age, albeit a miniature version of the great dinosaurs that once roamed planet Earth. Amazing spiked features and adaptable camouflaging abilities add to the wonderfulness of these endangered desert dwellers.
Danette Laate's captivating horned lizard (or horny toad lizard) has been carved from dolomite and cross-hatched for great reptilian skin detail. A Zuni Sunface element, representing the balance of the elements, of turquoise, jet and red coral has been set into this approximate 2 5/8" long, 1" wide and 1/2" tall turquoise-eyed fetish.
Jared Amesoli comes from the greater Laate family of Zuni artists. His brother was carver Yancy Robert Halusewa (d) and his sister is Adrianna Halusewa.
At about 3 1/2" tall, 2" wide and 3/4" deep, Jared's corn-maidens unite with Zuni Sunface symbols which represent the elements in balance, in this fabulous antler carving. The corn maiden's bodies are incised and inlaid with tidbits of turquoise, red coral, malachite, lapis and variscite. Their sweet faces are inlaid with turquoise.
