Coyote Loves The Moon

By Jayne Quam, Dine (Navajo)

This offering is sold.
With head held aloft Coyote (Wolf or Fox) serenades the moon. Jayne Quam carved this love struck bushytail from dolomite and inlaid a mosaic homage to the celestial plane. Against a black background of crushed marble a turquoise crescent moon is surrounded by stars of spiny oyster shell and mother of pearl shell.  Swirling comets of shell and blue azurite cruise through the universe. The eyes are inlaid turquoise. About 2 3/8" tall and 2" deep.
