Christopher Sandoval, Zuni-San Felipe
The quiet predawn hours allow a Bobcat (or wildcat) to successfully hunt. A keen sense of hearing and stealthy ways help it prosper. Magnificently carved from Afghani lapis, a prized variety mined in Afghanistan for thousands of years, exhibits a bold blue color that enchants the senses. Christopher Sandoval's carving prowess excites. His choice materials are always drool-worthy and interesting. A turquoise, spiny oyster shell and red coral bead offering is simply lovely. Christopher's father is renowned master carver Melvin Sandoval. This museum-quality, turquoise-eyed feline measures about 3 3/4" long, 1 1/4" wide and 2" tall.
Veronica Poblano's artistic Zuni lineage is important. Her father, iconic Zuni carver Leo Poblano (d) was the nephew of Teddy Weahkee (d). Their enormous contribution to Zuni fetish carving and jewelry continues with Veronica and her daughter Jovanna Poblano.
Permanently perched on a gorgeously carved black lip shell leaf, with crushed turquoise and a few bits of red coral, is this amazing feathered friend of stichtite. Veronica inlaid its lovely wings with turquoise and lapis. Friendly turquoise eyes take in the view, while a flat crest of feathers on its head is overlaid pen shell. About 2 1/4" long, 1" wide and 1 1/8" tall.
