Carved out of antler by Robert Michael Weahkee this protective Owl is just about to take flight. Its eyes are inlaid with turquoise beads and ground jet paste, and it wears a lovely necklace of inlaid lapis and azurite. Owls are revered in Zuni and sometimes referred to as the night grandfather looking over us as we sleep. This wonderful guardian is about 5 1/2" tall, 4 3/4" wide, and 1 1/4" deep.
