Zuni Pueblo tradition teaches there are Six Directions in life, assigning a color and animal to each one. Long ago, the Father of Medicine Societies, Po-shai-an-kia, established predatory animals as guardians of the Six Directions. They are each associated with a different color and are regarded as healing and protective. Fabian Tsethlikai's all-in-one Six-Directions
hosts a white Wolf
carved from marble, a picture jasper Mountain Lion
, a rainbow calsilica Eagle
, a Badger
from pipestone, a black marble Mole
and a turquoise Bear
permanently attached to a gorgeous base from veined marble. The far-seeing eagle is secured sturdily above the mole with a segment of metal. The animal's eyes are from inlaid turquoise or jet. Fabian etched a legend on the underside of the base. All together, measurements of this wonderful grouping of animals are about 2 3/4" long, 2 3/4" wide and 1 3/8" tall.
