A Rad Stingray

By Cody Cheama

Animal: Stingray, Material: Jet
This offering is sold.
Cody Cheama's father is Zuni carver Wilfred Cheama. We're in awe of his stringray made of jet, with great textural detail for skin. This ocean-dweller has turquoise inlaid eyes, plus turquoise, red coral and lapis accents. A stingray's coloration often reflects the ocean floor's natural shade, helping it to camouflage from its predators. About 2" long, 1 1/2" wide and 5/8" thick.
