Salvador Romero, Cochiti
Salvador Romero's has an astute eye. He uses it to see deep inside of stones before he uses his skilled hands to free the creatures he finds there. In these two contrasting stones he saw a mother and calf Bison. Then, with a few deft strokes, Salvador helped these hidden animals emerge. Bison medicine is about abundance and thankfulness. They wander in at about 4 3/4" long, 2" wide, and 2 1/2" tall.
Felino Eriacho's collectible Turtle is carved from special materials indigenous to the Zuni Pueblo area. He's used Zuni travertine overlaid with colorful Zuni azurite to create this endearing reptile with pen shell eyes. Turtle (Edo:wa) has always been esteemed because it carries its home on its back and goes with the flow of the river, not against it. About 2" long, 1" wide and 5/8" tall.
Maxx Laate comes from an esteemed family of carvers. His brother was talented artist Willard Laate (d).
Maxx's awesome Lizard is hewn from one specimen of antler. It has lots of amazing spikes, vivid turquoise inlaid eyes and drilled nostrils, not to mention gorgeous scale detailing. At the tip of this reptile's tongue is a cool flying insect. Part of a lizard's medicine is about remembering our dreams and focusing on our deepest visions. About 6 1/2" tall, 1 1/2" wide and 2" deep.
Gilbert Bowannie's terrific Turkey is carved of Zuni stone, a rich material indigenous to the Zuni Pueblo area. This turquoise-eyed bird has great plumage detail and an inlaid Zuni Sunface symbol. It's composed of lapis, pipestone, jet and mother-of-pearl. The Sunface represents the elements in balance. This bird's lower wing detail is overlaid with lovely sections of abalone. About 2 1/4" long, 1 1/2" wide and 1 3/4" tall.
Turkeys are important birds that have been cultivated by Puebloans for over a thousand years. Their feathers are used in ceremonies to this day.

Dee Edaakie's incredible Eagle is carved of a super-lovely matrix-rich specimen of chrysocolla with intelligent eyes of inlaid turquoise. Eagle's maintain a comprehensive view, seeing the whole picture, good medicine for us. We love the perched stance this raptor is presented in, including its skyward gaze while resting on one foot. About 2 1/8" tall, 1" wide and 1 7/8" deep.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this eagle fetish will go to the Zuni Eagle Sanctuary. Please see our resources page for more information on the sanctuary.
