This elegant six direction set has been carved out of a fabulous piece of onyx by Sebastian Santos, each of the animals' eyes has been inlaid with turquoise. Zuni tradition acknowledges the six directions, assigning an animal to each for the purpose of healing and protection. This carving is a superb interpretation! From the top: the Eagle
represents the zenith of the heavens, the Bear
comes from the west, the Wolf
from the east, the Mountain Lion
from the north, the Badger
from the south and the Mole
comes from within the depths of the earth. This fantastic carving is about 4 1/4" in diameter and 5" tall.
