Robert Michael Weahkee's grandmother Edna Leki (d) taught him to carve his first serpent out of deer antler. She was probably the first female fetish carver at Zuni. The Weahkee family is among the oldest carving families. The earliest recorded Weahkee carver was Teddy Weahkee (d) who worked with noted Zuni dealer C.G. Wallace. Robert Michael Weahkee's father was Anderson Weahkee (d). Anderson's mother was Edna Leki and Edna's father was Teddy Weahkee. Created from burnished antler is a delightful Owl fetish pendant that itself is about 2 1/2" long, 7/8" wide and 3/4" deep. Bright eyes are from turquoise inlays. It comes strung on a nice leather cord that's approximately 28" long. Refreshing aquamarine, turquoise and apatite beads are strung on a little offering necklace.
