"Wakanda Forever" is an extraordinary panther (Mountain-lion, puma or cougar) Six-Directional work gorgeously carved by Clive Hustito. It is hosting an offering bundle of a mother-of-pearl Mole, a spiny oyster shell Wolf, a turquoise Bear, a Picasso marble Eagle and a pipestone Badger. This entire carving represents the Six-Directions recognized by the Zuni people.
The animal's eyes are from either turquoise, pen shell, jet or lapis. The feline's long tail is up and resting to one side, like the old-way of presentation. Incised whiskers and a great feline face are given to this approximate 5 1/2" long, 3 1/2" tall and 1 1/2" wide serpentine creation. Extra shipping charges may apply.

Stealthy and powerful, a black panther (Mountain-lion, puma or cougar) has been carved from jet by Herbert Halate. 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.
Incised whiskers, attentive eyes of inlaid turquoise and a triple point offering bundle of marble, jet and turquoise grace this robust 11" long, 2" wide and 3 1/2" great feline. Herbert's polishing work is lustrous. Extra shipping charges may apply.

Christopher Sandoval, Zuni-San Felipe
Bryston Bowannie has brought us this charming Mountain-lion (puma, cougar or panther) carved from Zuni stone, a rich travertine indigenous to the Zuni Pueblo area. Its wide smile and turquoise inlaid eyes exude a friendly nature. A gloriously long tail is carved to one side of this approximate 2 1/2" long, 1 1/2" tall and 3/4" wide fine feline. Plump paws are a nice addition.
