Troy Sice's masterful set representing the six directions is outstanding! The Zunis acknowledge six directions and assign a color and animal to each. Each of the animal's offering bundles is representative of their assigned color. They are all sweetly and creatively carved of well-polished antler. Wolf
is 1 1/4" tall and 2 5/8" long, with a white mother-of-pearl carved point. Mountain Lion
is 2 1/4" tall and totes a yellow gold lip shell carved point. Eagle
measures 1 7/8" tall and has a many-colored abalone carved point. Badger
is 1 5/8" tall with a red spiny oyster shell point. Mole
is 1 1/2" tall with a red coral tipped nose, and a carved black lip shell point. Bear
is 2 1/4" tall and has a carved turquoise point. Animal's eyes are inlaid of pen shell, except eagle has turquoise inlaid eyes. Troy also burnt out areas of each animal for lovely detail. Don't miss this incredible and collectible set of six directions!
