A brave Badger
, the low-rider of the animal world, has been carved from serpentine by Sedrick Banteah. He comes from the greater Natewa, Dallas Quam (d) and Panteah family of Zuni fetish carvers. His brother was carver Terry Banteah (d). Sedrick's wonderful fetish has been given fur detail, turquoise inlaid eyes and digger claws. About 2 1/8" long, 1 1/8" wide and 1/2" tall.
