By Christopher Sandoval, Zuni-San Felipe

Animal: Mountain Lion, Material: Belvedere Jasper
This offering is sold.
A direct gaze, forward ears and a couched position readies a Mountain-lion (cougar, puma or panther) for the pursuit. These supreme hunters are quiet and stealthy. Carved from an outstanding specimen of Belvedere jasper, Christopher Sandoval's feline displays all the physical characteristics seen in these magnificent cats. A lusciously long tail, watchful eyes of inlaid turquoise and incised paws are given. About 3 1/2" long, 1 1/4" wide and 1 1/4" tall. Christopher's father is renowned carver Melvin Sandoval.
