This offering is sold.
Cellester Laate (d) was from the greater Laate family of Zuni artists. His sister, Danette Laate continues to carve wonderful fetishes. We're enchanted with Cellester's older carving of a duck (or other feathered friend) that measures about 1 5/8" long, 5/8" wide and 1 1/4" tall, with turquoise inlaid eyes. We love how Cellester made use of this abalone specimen, allowing the vibrant orange colors to highlight the head and incised wing area of this very collectible fetish.
