Travis Nieto is from the greater Natewa, Dallas Quam (d) and Panteah extended family of Zuni fetish carvers. His father is Vern Nieto and his brother is Frank Nieto, both respected carvers.
Travis' young Lizard sets off to soak up the morning sun in Zuni land, carved from a serpentine that is like reptilian skin. Discerning eyes of inlaid turquoise and a long tail give this lizard a lot of personality. About 2 3/4" long, 1 1/8" wide and 1" tall.
