Giving Thanks

By Ray Tsalate

Animal: Turkey, Material: Antler
This offering is sold.
Ray Tsalate's antler Turkey is utterly adorable, petite and unassuming but the message that it carries is powerful. Turkey represents gratitude and honoring the gifts or blessings received as they may not be infinite. This humble little turkey is brought to life with a gold lip beak and a bright red coral wattle. The incised feather details along the back are darkened by burnishing the antler. The carving measures about 1" long, 1/2" wide by 7/8" tall and has eyes of inlaid lapis.
