Burt Awelagte is from the Othole extended family of Zuni artists. His cousin Joey Quam (d) helped him get started in carving. Burt's latest offering is this fabulous Eagle (or Hawk who is little brother to eagle in the Zuni way) carved of lovely and soothing fluorite with turquoise inlaid eyes. About 2" long, 1" wide and 1 1/4" tall.
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.
