This offering is sold.
Badgers belong to the weasel family, along with wolverines, skunks and otters. These mammals are persistent and resolute in accomplishing whatever it is they set out to do. This is good animal medicine for us, to follow through with tenacity. Larry Peina's very cool badger has been carved from Acoma slate, a variety of slate found around Acoma Pueblo, New Mexico. Neat incising marks indicate fur and vibrant turquoise eyes are given. About 2" long, 1/2" tall and 1 1/4" wide.
