Since bodies of water, such as ponds, streams and lakes cool off as weather conditions change to a colder environment, many fish seek to fatten up in the autumn months. No longer is it their concern to keep cool from the summer's heat, but to hunt prey in waters that may have been too hot before.
Adeptly moving about, prolific and collectible carver Brian Yatsattie's masterful mosaic fish or perhaps a trout, is in hunting mode. It navigates it watery home via drilled eyes. A stunning mosaic of turquoise, shell segments and jet paste are gorgeously overlaid on a bed of abalone. The shimmering abalone side also has inlays of jet paste and shell pieces. The hits of red-orange shell along the top of this approximate 5 5/8" long, 2" tall and 1" wide with curvature, fish are fantastically colorful. This water creature is fabulous viewed from either side.
Veronica Poblano descends from the greater Teddy Weahkee (d) family of carvers. Her father was noted and iconic Zuni carver Leo Poblano (d), nephew of Teddy Weahkee.
Carved from a magical fluorite specimen, Veronica's Frog is happily nestled in crushed turquoise, to represent water. A few bits of red coral are sprinkled amongst the turquoise as well. A beautiful abalone shell is where this amazing amphibian calls home. A frog is a precious creature that imbues all the medicine we've come to appreciate from this animal. In the Zuni way, a frog is a sign of water, where there is water there is life. A frog's animal medicine is about cleansing and emotional healing.
With big endearing eyes of turquoise, along with rare sugilite accents, this collectible work is about 3 1/4" long, 2 1/4" deep and 1" tall. It comes with Veronica's sterling silver signature label attached.
