This graceful little pueblo maiden by Ray Tsalate is carved from antler, patiently standing bare footed on a base of marble. She wears a mother of pearl shell feather in her finely carved hair, swept up into two little buns, plus a fine necklace of inlaid red coral with a turquoise center piece. Her inlaid eyes of brown pen shell and the red coral mouth convey a serene reverence. The sleeves of her dress are decorated with Dragonflies darkened with jet paste while the bottom is accented with an inlaid design turquoise, red coral and lines filled with pipestone paste.  This beautiful carving measures about 1 1/8" wide by 1" deep and stands at 3" tall including the base.
