is backordered. We will ship it separately when it becomes available.
Carved in intricate detail from its prehensile tail, curled in a resting position, its leaf grabbing hands, and independently swiveling eyes all covered in finely incised scales. In the 1980's the Cheama family started carving in a highly realistic style. Fabian Cheama's ability to carve with both delicacy and life is evident in this small tropical reptile. We love the open carving work between the Lizard and the leaf. The eyes are inlaid red coral. About 1 7/8" tall and 7/8" wide.
Kateri Quandelacy Sanchez
Debra Gasper's shy and humble Frog is carved of a pretty specimen of green turquoise inlaid with sterling silver eyes. She's incised a cute mouth on this amphibian. About 2 3/8" long, 1 1/8" deep and 1" tall. Frog (Dakkya) is a sign of water. Water is life.
Andres Quandelacy comes from a family of many carvers, each with their own style. We love Andres' interpretation of the old way of carving a Mountain-lion with the tail running along the back. Andres takes a literal "twist" on this tradition. This collectable big cat is about 2 1/8" long and 7/8" tall with inlaid coral eyes and heartline.

The center phoenix bird station has an approximate 1 1/2" wingspan and is 1 5/8" tall. The inlaid jet dots on the top area of the wings indicate it's a Phoenix bird, according to the Shack's.

Mary C. Lovato, Kewa (Santo Domingo)
Mary C. Lovato is an award-winning Kewa (Santo Domingo) Pueblo jeweler, extremely popular for her enticing mosaic shell work, this time expressed in an exciting pair of earrings!
