Loyal Bushytail Friend

By Herbert Halate

Animal: Bushytail, Material: Jet
This offering is sold.

Herbert Halate's long and lean bushytail (Coyote, Fox, or Wolf) is carved from a silky piece of jet. A vibrant turquoise point offering bundle is given in thanks for this canine's medicine and is complemented by inlaid eyes of the same turquoise. The light jet stone has a high polish and measures about 3 1/2" long, 5/8" wide by 1" tall.

Herbert's father was carver Leonard Halate (d) who started producing fetishes in the 1940's. Herbert and his siblings, Reva Halate, Marvelita Phillips and Pansy Natachu, continue the tradition.
