This absolutely gorgeous Snake
is carved of an orthoceras fossil stone, coming in at lengthy 6 3/8" long, 1 3/4" wide and 1/2" thick. Farlan and Paulette Quam's reptile has intelligent eyes of inlaid turquoise. Not only does this material host one orthoceras specimen, but there's a tiny one on the side of this reptile. In part, a snake's medicine is that of alchemy, i.e. that which is negative may be transformed into something positive.
