Kevin Chapman, Zuni-Sioux
is backordered. We will ship it separately when it becomes available.
Cerrillos turquoise is one of the rarest turquoises in the world, found in an area south of Santa Fe, N.M. Kevin Chapman's gifted hands brought about this notable Mountain-lion (cougar or puma) from a matrix-rich specimen of this prized turquoise.
A deluxe tail is curled up, because this lengthy feline is crouched and ready for action. An extraordinary offering bundle arranged of a crinoid fossil with turquoise, shell and an abalone point is secured to this collectible, turquoise-eyed cat.
About 9 1/4" long, 3" wide and 2 1/2" tall. Extra shipping charges may apply.
Although there will be no SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market this year you can still bring home this amazing and ribbon winning piece from the 98th Market (2019). This gorgeous piece by Troy Sice won an Honorable Mention ribbon in the same year that Troy won the Best in Show award in the Class V: Sculpture category for a separate entry.
Out of the six directional protectors for the A:shiwi (Zuni People), the white Wolf is the guardian of the east. This wolf by Troy's carved from antler, on the look out, ready to pounce and yet gently carries a sweet blue bird friend. The bird is tied in with an obsidian arrow point with beads of turquoise and coral as an offering bundle carried on the back. The piece measures about 8 1/2" long by 3" across and stands at 8" tall. The wolf's eyes are inlaid lapis. The brown detailing of the nose, ears and tail are from expert burnishing of the antler to bring out the brown coloring. Extra shipping charges may apply.
Troy is an accomplished carver who comes from a long family history of carvers. He is a third-generation carver, the grandson of George H. CheeChee, nephew of Ramie and Miguel Haloo and half-brother of Colvin Peina. His creations have garnered awards in many shows across the country, including Best Of Show in the 94th (2015) SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market, Class V: Sculpture category.
