Ducks are revered at Zuni Pueblo, because they can swim in water, walk on land and fly in the air. Amazing abilities indeed. Maxx Laate has applied his skills to an incredible specimen of Boulder opal, carving a sweet duck. This piece of Boulder opal is just exploding with generous areas of blue, green and purple colors. This fabulous duck with incising marks for feather details and inlaid turquoise eyes, is about 1 1/4" long, 1" wide and 1/4" thick.
