Around the age of eleven or twelve, Herbert Halate learned the art of fetish carving by watching his father Leonard Halate (d), an earlier and noted carver from Zuni. Herbert's sisters Reva, Vella, Marvelita and Pansy are also artists.
Herbert's outstanding Raven fetish necklace and earrings set is beautifully bold. Each jet bird has enchanted eyes of inlaid turquoise, exuding a lot of personality. Herbert lightly texturized each feathered friend. The center wide-winged raven is about 2 1/4" long and 1 1/2" wide, while the other bird's average 1 1/2" long. The matching hook earrings are about 2 1/2" long and 1 1/4" wide. The overall length of this single strand fetish necklace is about 26". All the red coral beads are brilliant and well-suited for this collectible necklace and earrings set.
