Agnes Peynetsa's all hand-coiled and hand-painted, with natural clay and mineral paints, pottery bowl features creatures like tadpoles, a Frog in three dimension, perhaps a horned Lizard or an anthropomorphic creature, and Dragonfly.
A bowl such as this is used to hold ceremonial cornmeal in a Zuni home. It is known by other names, such as cloud bowl, cornmeal bowl and prayer bowl. The twisted clay handle is fabulous. Signed by the artist. Extra shipping charges may apply. About 6 1/4" tall, 6 1/2" wide and 5 3/4" deep.

Skillfully all hand-formed and hand-painted, with natural clay and mineral paints, Priscilla Peynetsa's "Lizard & Dragonflies" large pottery bowl is a wonderful gathering of Dragonfly, Lizard, tadpole and rainbird creatures. The tadpoles squiggle on the top rim of this piece. A small sun design is present next to one of the dragonflies. We adore how Priscilla made the lizard in three-dimensions, with its friendly head coming up from the side of the bowl. About 8 1/4" tall, 8" wide and 8 1/4" deep. Signed by the artist. Extra shipping charges may apply.
Florentino Martinez descends from the greater Laate family of Zuni fetish carvers. He started the art in 1991 while in high school, first doing fetishes with a simple style. He was inspired by other family members who were carving in a more detailed manner. Consequently, around 1996 Florentino's work grew to a sophisticated and unparalleled level.
We're honored to offer this masterwork by Florentino, depicting a Lizard Bow Priest who rises from a Dragonfly incised bowl, protectively safeguarding Zuni Pueblo. His entire tail wraps around the base. The ancient pueblo has etched features like small windows, mud bricks and a kiva opening below this sacred reptile's face. The lizard Bow Priest has vigilant turquoise inlaid eyes and other adornments. He holds a rattle gourd plus a bow and arrow.
It's truly remarkable this museum-quality work is created from one specimen of handsome Picasso marble. This stone is laden with golden tan, brown and grey hues. About 2 5/8" tall, 1 7/8" wide and 2" deep. Extra shipping charges may apply.
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.
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.
