A cool and camouflaged Lizard clings to the desert's warm soil, while dreaming its best dreams. Christopher Sandoval carved this arid-region dweller from Indian paint stone and inlaid vibrant eyes from turquoise. His father is renowned carver Melvin Sandoval.

Indian Paint stone is also known as Death Valley Paint stone or Navajo Blanket stone. This gorgeous material comes from the Death Valley area of California, where collecting is no longer possible. The natural and diverse patterns seen in this sedimentary rock are otherworldly.

A lizard's animal medicine helps us remember our dreams and focus on our deepest visions. About 4 3/4" long, 2" wide and 1 1/4" tall.
