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.

About 6 1/2" tall, 1 1/2" wide and 2" deep.
Although there will be no SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market this year you can still bring home this amazing and ribbon winning piece from the 98th Market (2019).

Out of the six directional protectors for the A:shiwi (Zuni People), the white Wolf is the guardian of the east. This wolf by Troy's carved from antler, on the look out, ready to pounce and yet gently carries a sweet blue bird friend. The bird is tied in with an obsidian arrow point with beads of turquoise and coral as an offering bundle carried on the back. The piece measures about 8 1/2" long by 3" across and stands at 8" tall. The wolf's eyes are inlaid lapis. The brown detailing of the nose, ears and tail are from expert burnishing of the antler to bring out the brown coloring. Extra shipping charges may apply.

CheeChee, nephew of Ramie and Miguel Haloo and half-brother of Colvin Peina. His creations have garnered awards in many shows across the country, including Best Of Show in the 94th (2015) SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market, Class V: Sculpture category.
