Antler & Pink Mussel Shell Seahorses

By Ruben Najera

This offering is sold.
Ruben Najera is from the greater Laate family of Zuni Pueblo carvers. His brother is artist Esteban Najera. Ruben's latest offering is an outstanding pair of beloved seahorses touching noses. Their silver bead eyes are exquisite. One of the fish is carved from antler including the base, while the partner seahorse is carved from iridescent green abalone shell. Together for life, they measure approximately 4" tall, 3" wide and 2" deep. Fossils of extinct seahorse species dating back to the Middle Miocene have been found in Slovenia.
