Travis Nieto is from the greater Natewa, Dallas Quam (d) and Panteah extended family of Zuni fetish carvers. His father is Vern Nieto and his brother is Frank Nieto, both respected carvers.
Travis' young Lizard sets off to soak up the morning sun in Zuni land, carved from a serpentine that is like reptilian skin. Discerning eyes of inlaid turquoise and a long tail give this lizard a lot of personality. About 2 3/4" long, 1 1/8" wide and 1" tall.

Michael Coble's talkative parrot is perfectly balanced on its perch. Carved from a wonderful specimen of striped watermelon serpentine with incised detailing on the head, body, wings, tail, and feet. With a beautifully executed curved break and clever eyes of inlaid jet, this lovey bird measures about 4 5/8", 2" wide by 1 5/8" deep.
Nelson Yatsattie's Lizard carved from fluorite is smooth, long and sly. This lighting fast reptile measures about 3 1/2" long, 1 1/2" wide by 1" tall, with smart eyes of inlaid turquoise. The carving had curvy minimalistic lines with incised feet. The long tail flips towards the back of the head and incredibly is carved forming an open loop at the back. Lizard medicine helps us remember our dreams and focus on our deepest visions, as a lizard basks in the heat of the sun, quiet yet alert.

Dan Simplicio, Jr.
As a member of the Parrot Clan, Dan Simplicio Jr. is drawn to carving these amazing birds, as seen with his spectacular serpentine parrot. This fetish is the largest piece we've ever seen from him.
This feathered friend views its world through red coral and gold lip shell inlaid eyes. Its beak is well-polished and lovely. This fabulously realistic parrot has incredibly carved wing detail and will bring much happiness to any place upon which it rests.
Dan signed his traditional Zuni name on the underside "Tse Wa Da" and inlaid a red coral heartline or arrow.
It's perched at about 5 1/2" tall, is 2" wide and 4" deep. We don't see many carvings from him very often. Don't miss this collectible and special carving. Extra shipping charges may apply.

Charles Martinez, Jr.
This necklace is a show stopper! Charles Martinez, Jr. carved a beautiful Bear from the spiral of a melon shell, a very large type of sea snail. On the shell he overlaid an alternating heartline of red coral. A wonderful Dragonfly friend is incised on the bear. This bear pendant is about 2 1/2" from nose to tail and 1 1/4" long, with a red coral eye. Above the bear are several other carvings, all of them carry their own unique personality. Highest on the necklace are two Beavers, one is carved of luscious mother of pearl shell, the other of Picasso marble. There are two Eagles, again one is mother of pearl shell but the other is a rich green serpentine. There is a Frog of Picasso marble and a Badger of red coral. Just above the bear pendant are two graceful birds of mother of pearl shell. Each animal has inlaid eyes of black jet or bright turquoise and range in size from 3/4" to 1 1/2" long. With a secure threaded clasp this necklace is 23" long. Signed by the artist.
