Jonas Hustito's father is carver Clive Hustito. They descend from the noted Hustito and Lowsayatee family of Zuni Pueblo artists. Laying in wait for a juicy harvester red ant to scurry by, a turquoise-eyed horned Lizard is ready to strike. Spiked horns and etched scales are lovely features of this roughly 2" long, 1" wide and 5/8" tall regarded reptile made from onyx. In Zuni Pueblo tradition, horned lizards are associated with the Red Ant Society.
