The prettiest Bobcat (or wildcat) stalks for a successful hunt. Crouched down low with blown out facial fur, etched claws and watchful eyes from inlaid turquoise, Zuni carver Nelson Yatsattie's gorgeous tijilite feline is about 3 1/4" long, 1" wide and 1 1/2" tall. Nelson's brother is prolific carver Brian Yatsattie. Although this is not a collaborative fetish, sometimes they do work together on pieces. There's a similar shared artistry that's simply lovely.
