Leroy Chavez (d) was from the greater Lunasee, Tsethlikai and Chavez family of Zuni artists. His brother is carver David Chavez Sr. Both Leroy and David were taught the art of fetish carving by Herbert Him Sr. 

We're honored to offer this collectible travertine Owl by Leroy, about 1 3/4" tall, 1 1/8" wide and 1 1/8" deep. Friendly eyes of jet are inlaid. A simple turquoise bead offering necklace is attached in thanks for what an owl teaches us, and for what the Zunis call "the Night Grandfather" because an owl does his work at night.
