By Lorandina Sheche

Animal: Eagle, Material: Found Septarian Nodule
This offering is sold.

Lorandina Sheche's family is noted for taking inspiration from traditional fetishes carved long ago. Her mother the late Thelma Sheche learned to carve from father, the late Theodore Kucate, by first helping him with the polishing work. He was an early recognized Zuni Pueblo carver who also led his family in traveling to perform Zuni dances. A found septarian nodule stone Eagle (or Hawk) has an inlaid "X" on its back to indicate wings, in the old-style manner. It is set with pen shell, gold lip shell and turquoise. Beautiful variations within the stone serve as a natural heartline or breath path. A collectible turquoise-eyed raptor that's about 5" long, 1 3/8" wide and 1 1/2" tall. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this eagle fetish will go to the Zuni Eagle Sanctuary.
