Delvin Leekya's gorgeous bushytail (Coyote, Fox, or Wolf) is a lovely Picasso marble creation, with turquoise inlaid eyes and sweet feet overlaid with jet. This particular Picasso marble specimen is super nice. A gold lip shell and Pacific green snail shell point offering bundle is attached to this happy canine with a turquoise-eyed, pink mussel shell fish in its mouth. Together, they measure about 2 3/4" long, 7/8" wide and 1 1/4" tall.
Delvin's grandfather was renowned Zuni carver Leekya Deyuse (d). Leekya has been the family's surname for quite a while because Leekya had asked his children to use his first name as their last name, when they started school. Apparently there were a lot of people named Deyuse back then. Delvin and his brothers Freddie and Hayes, continue in their grandfather's carving legacy.
