Zuni Grandmothers impart wisdom in Sandra Quandelacy's exquisite gold lip mother-of-pearl shell two-sided carving. Their reassuring faces are etched and darkened with jet paste, while star and Dragonfly elements adorn their fringed shawls. An olla pottery jar and corn are also incised into this approximate 2 3/4" tall, 2 1/2" wide and 3/4" deep lovely piece. Red coral, lapis lazuli and turquoise pieces are also inlaid.
