Arvella Cheama's brothers are distinguished carvers Fabian, Lance and Wilfred Cheama. They hail from the greater Natewa, Dallas Quam and Panteah family of amazing Zuni artists.
This small Hawk has landed, looking over its territory through discerning eyes of inlaid turquoise. Arvella's intricately detailed feather work, talon and beak features are lovely. Carved from always fascinating Picasso marble, this must-have raptor is about 1 5/8" tall, 1 1/8" wide and 3/4" deep.
Camilio Martinez descends from the greater Laate family of Zuni artists. His father is Charles Martinez Sr., and his brother is Charles Martinez Jr., both wonderful carvers.
Wasps are important in keeping garden and crop pests under control, as they capture and consume many harmful insects. We're loving Camilio's marble wasp with mother-of-pearl wings, that are incised and darkened with jet paste. This beneficial insect also has segmented antennae and a little stinger of mother-of-pearl. A Picasso marble toadstool is the perfect and permanent resting spot for this winged creature. Approximately 2 1/2" tall, 2" wide and 2 1/4" deep.
Of all the arachnids, spiders form the largest group, with more than 3,000 species in North America alone. All spiders are predators. Most spiders have 4 pairs of eyes arranged in various designs on the front of their head. The hunting spiders eyes are arranged in such a way to enable them to see in all directions at once.
This absolutely gorgeous Spider by Michael Coble is carved of rich Picasso marble, and is about 3 3/4" long, 2 3/4" wide and 2" tall, with eyes of inlaid turquoise. We love its incised and furry abdomen and tarsal claws.
This marvelous Mountain-lion of Picasso marble by Clive Hustito, would be a grand reminder for anyone trying to set new boundaries, as a mountain lion lives this way all the time.
This chunk of Picasso marble is very pretty, and its size would command any shelf, mantel or desk upon which it sits. This feline's face is amazing, as it watches its territory through turquoise inlaid eyes and has incised whiskers.
Clive attached a generous shell point with red coral and turquoise beads on this great cat that's about 11" long, 5" tall and 4" wide. Extra shipping charges may apply.

Maegan Shetima's enchanting Eagle (or Hawk who is little brother to eagle in the Zuni way) is realistically and gorgeously carved of Picasso marble, about 2 7/8" tall, 1 5/8" long and 2 1/8" deep. This raptor's piercing eyes are of inlaid jet and shell. The fish within this raptor's talons has an eye of inlaid turquoise. Maegan's precise incising marks make for fabulous feather detail.
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.
