A gorgeous grouping of hand-carved animals are strung on this single strand baby olive heishe and red coral bead fetish necklace representing the Six-Directions that Zuni Pueblo people recognize. They assign a color and animal to each. At the very center of this collectible work of wearable art by Daphne and Leland Boone, is a fabulous turquoise point that measures about 2" long and 1 1/8" wide. The directional animals are a White Wolf carved from marble, a tijilite Mountain Lion, an Eagle of ricolite, a Badger of magnesite, a jet Mole that's about 1 5/8" long, and a turquoise Bear coming in at about 1 1/4" long. The animal's have inlaid eyes of turquoise or red coral, except for the mole, whose eyes are incised. The overall length of this treasured necklace is approximately 26".
An elegant sea Turtle lifts its head as it floats, carved from tijilite by Corwin Yamutewa. This reptile's shell is gorgeously incised and red coral eyes, drilled nostrils and a mouth are added. About 3 3/4" long, 2 3/8" wide and 1" tall.
Corwin says "Fetish carving runs on my father's side of the family. My late uncle Rufus Comosona was a fetish necklace maker. My aunt Carol Martinez and her daughters, Clissa and Felissa Martin are also fetish carvers from my dad's side of the family. My late Grandfather Benito Yamutewa also carved at one point in his life."
