All In One Six Directions

By Travis Nieto

This offering is sold.
The Zuni Pueblo people traditionally honor Six-Directions with a specific color and animal for each one. Travis Nieto's directional carving includes Wolf, Badger, Eagle, Bear and a Mountain Lion. A Mole is customarily included but is perhaps hidden within this approximate 2" tall, 1 3/4" wide and 1 3/8" deep serpentine carving. Each exquisitely hewn creature has eyes from turquoise. Travis' brother is carver Frank Nieto.
