Justin Red Elk is the nephew of carver Herbert Halate. Many times in Zuni family members teach other family members how to carve and make jewelry. There is a family resemblance in the style, animals carved, and materials used. Here we can clearly see the family resemblance in the smooth lines and curved tail of this jet Mountain lion
is similar to Herbert's mountain lions but totally unique to Justin at the same time. With pipestone inlaid eyes and a handsome pink mussel mother of pearl offering tied to the side this greatest of all hunters is about 4 1/2" long, 1" wide, and 1 1/4" tall.
