Giving Thanks Night Grandfather

By Ray Tsalate

Animal: Owl, Material: Antler
This offering is sold.
Offering heartfelt thanks with beautifully raised wings, master carver Ray Tsalate's antler Owl does so at approximately 2" tall, 3/4" wide and 1 1/4" deep. A sweet gold lip shell beak and eyes from pen shell in gold lip shell convey sincerity. Elegantly etched plumage is brought to the fore thanks to lovely burnishing treatment. The Zuni Pueblo people refer to an owl as the "Night Grandfather" because he does his work at at night. Extra shipping charges may apply.
