Animal: Owl, Material: Jet
This offering is sold.
A wonderful Owl is carved from jet by accomplished artist Herbert Halate. Jet is fossilized coal, how cool is that? Softly etched plumage resembles a fringed shawl and large eyes set with turquoise see everything during the night. The Zuni Pueblo people regard an owl as "the Night Grandfather" because of its nocturnal activities. About 2 1/2" tall, 1 1/4" wide and 1 1/4" deep.
