Frankie Poblano Chattin
Frankie Poblano Chattin comes from the greater Teddy Weahkee (d) family of Zuni artists. His parents are jewelers and carvers Jovanna Poblano and Daniel Chattin.
Carved from a rich specimen of Picasso marble, Frankie's approximate 2 1/4" tall, 1 1/2" wide and 1 3/4" tall Badger kit is eager to explore through its turquoise inlaid eyes that are nicely polished. A purple spiny oyster shell point with heishe, red coral, turquoise and a sliver of shell compose the lovely and colorful offering bundle.
Stewart Alonzo, Dine-Laguna
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.

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.
