A gorgeous collection of animals, making up Stewart Quandelacy's set representing the six directions
that Zuni Pueblo people recognize. A protective animal and corresponding colors are assigned to each direction. The Wolf
is 2 1/2" long, carved from marble. The leopard jasper Mountain Lion
is 2 1/2" long. This Eagle
is of a pink leopard jasper and measures 3" long. The Badger
is 2 1/2" long and is carved from a red jasper. The jet Mole
is 2 3/4" long. The turquoise Bear
is the smallest at 2" long. Almost all the animals have eyes of inlaid turquoise with the exception of the bear whose eyes are of inlaid jet. The offering bundles are colorful and well-arranged with attractive materials like lapis, cuprite, red coral, gold lip shell, mother of pearl shell, and spiny oyster shell. This outstanding set will brighten and bring a calming serenity to any space!
Zuni Fetishes by Hal Zina Bennett makes a wonderful companion to any Six Direction Set.
