Horned Lizards are like little time travelers from the Jurassic age, albeit a miniature version of the great dinosaurs that once roamed planet Earth. Amazing spiked features and adaptable camouflaging abilities add to the wonderfulness of these endangered desert dwellers.
Danette Laate's captivating horned lizard (or horny toad lizard) has been carved from dolomite and cross-hatched for great reptilian skin detail. A Zuni Sunface element, representing the balance of the elements, of turquoise, jet and red coral has been set into this approximate 2 5/8" long, 1" wide and 1/2" tall turquoise-eyed fetish.
Derrick Kaamasee's uncle is renowned carver Maxx Laate. Derrick started carving in the late 1980s and comes from the greater Laate family of Zuni fetish artists. He's taught many others the art of fetish carving, including Destry Siutza.
Derrick's quail is a charming bird, carved from dolomite with turquoise inlaid eyes and a great crest. Its incised and layered plumage is outstanding. These birds delight us with their gentleness and family connection. About 2 1/4" long, 1 1/4" wide and 2 1/4" tall.
