Regal Elk

By Troy Sice

Animal: Elk, Material: Antler
This offering is sold.
This majestic Elk is the second that Zuni Pueblo artist Troy Sice has ever created. It is masterfully carved from one piece of antler with turquoise inlaid eyes. A strong presence and mature antlers give him a regal personality. Meticulously inlaid precious stones and shell such as lapis, turquoise, red coral, pen shell, mother of pearl, variscite, pink mussel shell, ricolite and jet abound. Troy has also burnished the nose, ears and traditional boots of this incredible standing fetish, which measures about 4 3/4" tall, 1 1/2" wide and 1 1/4" deep.
