Brilliant embellishments of glistening sterling silver beads, lively turquoise and pretty red coral pieces are seen all over this fabulous peacock's body by Ruben Najera. He comes from the greater Laate family of accomplished Zuni artists. His brother is carver Esteban Najera. They learned the art from their uncles Maxx Laate and Pernell Laate (d). Jet inlaid eyes, a sweet crest and a sterling silver beak are more lovely features of this approximate 2 1/4" long, 2" wide and 2 3/4" tall antler peacock with a magnificent train.
