Wolf, Coyote and Fox each have special qualities. For example, a wolf is a highly intelligent canine that instructs its young, helps fellow injured wolves, lives in family groups and hunts cooperatively. A coyote is devoted to family and they are great communicators, mating for life. They give back to the environment in the form of pest control. A fox is a solitary and discreet animal, closely bonded to family. They are self-sufficient and good listeners, having superb hearing. All these natural traits and abilities are honorable and we can glean much from them in the form of their animal medicine, or what they teach us. 

Charles Natewa's Picasso marble bushytail is a splendid carving, about 1 7/8" long, 7/8" wide and 1" tall. The hues seen in the stone are reminiscent of the fall season's color palette.  It has sterling silver eyes, plus a green turquoise and olive heishe shell offering bundle. His mother is carver Daisy Rose Leonard. His father is artist LaVies Natewa and they descend from the greater Natewa, Dallas Quam (d) and Panteah extended family of Zuni artists.
