Darrin Boone incorporates Zuni Sunface symbols into his fetish carvings. Here he's overlaid this important symbol, which represents the elements in balance, with turquoise, mother-of-pearl, coral and jet on this gorgeous Picasso marble quail. He completed this bird with slightly etched plumage, sweet eyes set with turquoise and a pen shell beak plus top knot. About 2 1/4" tall, 3/4" wide and 1 1/2" deep.
