On The Job Raptor

By Christine Banteah, Taos

Animal: Owl, Material: Turquoise
This offering is sold.
Aware of its surroundings, Christine Banteah's cool Owl has observant eyes of inlaid jet. Christine says it's hard to come by good turquoise these days, so we're fortunate to get this raptor of green turquoise from her. We love the brown matrix seen within this specimen, and how Christine allowed part of it to show off this bird's beak. About 1 1/2" tall and 7/8" long, with nicely incised feathers.
