Frankie Poblano Chattin
Frankie Poblano Chattin comes from the greater Teddy Weahkee (d) family of noted Zuni artists. His parents are jewelers and carvers Jovanna Poblano and Daniel Chattin, and his grandmother is artist Veronica Poblano.
Confident and deep incising shows how lovely this Picasso marble Horse's mane and tail are. Large eyes from turquoise express just how sweet this approximate 2 3/4" long, 1 1/4" wide and 2" tall equine friend is. An offering bundle to remember is composed of blue kyanite, rich pen shell, turquoise, luminescent moonstone, red coral, glowing and faceted labradorite beads.
Andres Lementino's liberated stallion (Horse) has been gorgeously carved from a white marble with lovely and subtle grey variations. Excited eyes are from turquoise. A stone-to-stone inlaid Zuni Sunface is set with turquoise, jet, mother-of-pearl and coral, a symbol of good luck. It represents balance in life: traditionally, turquoise (blue) stands for Father Sky, coral (red) stands for Mother Earth, and mother-of-pearl shell (white) and jet (black) represent all the elements in balance. Artists use their creative license and often choose different colored stones or shells in their pieces. The Sunface is used as an offering or blessing from the artist in thanks for the medicine or spirit that it brings to us.
Including the well polished black marble base, this approximate 6 1/2" tall, 3 1/2" deep and 1 5/8" wide work will command any room. Signed by the artist. Extra shipping charges may apply.
Native American symbols of power, mobility and continuance of life adorn Joel Pajarito's spectacular tufa cast jewel box. Bison (or buffalo), Horse, sacred Corn, hand elements signifying unity, sprawling teepees, a magnificent head-dressed rider, in addition to important celestial stars, moon, sun and grand raincloud motifs are tufa cast from sterling silver. This amazing jewelry process involves cutting a tufa stone in half, smoothing out both surface sides, carving a sprue hole on top, then skillfully etching out designs, where molten sterling silver was poured in. Joel painstakingly and thoughtfully fortified every surface of this luxurious and museum-quality 2-piece lid with caddy. He also inlaid stunning sky-blue Kingman turquoise and brilliant red coral cabochons. This ultra-gorgeous box is approximately 3" long, 2 3/8" deep and 1 5/8" tall including cabochons, perfect for housing your most treasured keepsake. Signed by the artist.
