Debra Gasper carved this Owl out of indigenous jet from Acoma Pueblo. With piercing eyes of inlaid silver this night raptor can see things other can not. Acoma Pueblo, about 130 miles east of Zuni, is home to the well known village of Sky City which sits high on a mesa. Debra Gasper is the great granddaughter of Teddy Weahkee (1890-1965), an important Zuni carver and artist. This special owl is about 1 3/8" tall and 7/8" wide.
