Veronica Poblano descends from the greater Teddy Weahkee (d) family of carvers. Her father was noted and iconic Zuni carver Leo Poblano (d), nephew of Teddy Weahkee.
Carved from a magical fluorite specimen, Veronica's Frog is happily nestled in crushed turquoise, to represent water. A few bits of red coral are sprinkled amongst the turquoise as well. A beautiful abalone shell is where this amazing amphibian calls home. A frog is a precious creature that imbues all the medicine we've come to appreciate from this animal. In the Zuni way, a frog is a sign of water, where there is water there is life. A frog's animal medicine is about cleansing and emotional healing.
With big endearing eyes of turquoise, along with rare sugilite accents, this collectible work is about 3 1/4" long, 2 1/4" deep and 1" tall. It comes with Veronica's sterling silver signature label attached.
This significant sterling silver cobble style inlay cuff bracelet is a masterpiece by Lloyd Tsalabutie, father of the late great carver Jeffery Tsalabutie (d). Carving only occasionally, Lloyd is more well-known as a jeweler. He is one of a few Zuni jewelers doing this gorgeous style of meticulous stone work.
Using all natural stones, Lloyd has formed six Zuni Sunface designs, inlaid stone to stone in various combinations of either turquoise, red coral, sugilite, opal, lapis and jet. The Zuni Sunface symbol represents the elements in balance.
This cuff bracelet is about is 3/4" wide. The entire inner circumference is about 5 1/2" including opening of 1 1/8". Lloyd's signature is to incise a depiction of sacred 'Dowa Yalanne' or Corn Mountain located in Zuni, on the underside of his works, as seen on this magnificent work.
