Sweet in spirit, Delvin Leekya's watermelon serpentine bushytail (Coyote, Fox, or Wolf) is a lovely creation, with turquoise inlaid eyes. A gold lip shell and Pacific green snail shell point offering bundle is attached. About 4 3/8" long, 1" wide and 2" 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.
