Once again, Ray Tsalate blows us away with his creative energy, this time manifesting itself in a captivating antler Dragonfly
maiden. She's presented on a nice slice of Elk
crown, hovering over a serpentine lily pad accompanied by a pink mussel shell flower, secured with a twist of copper. Whorled hair is styled traditionally, beautifully incised and topped off with a carved mother-of-pearl feather. Her peaceful eyes are of inlaid pen shell. Ethereal wings are from black lip shell, and she wears an inlaid necklace of colorful turquoise, red coral, malachite and lapis. Incised dragonflies and star elements are inlaid with crushed lapis paste. Including base, this magical work is about 2 1/2" tall, 1 3/4" wide and 1 5/8" deep. Extra shipping charges may apply.
