Animal: African Lion, Material: Picasso Marble
This offering is sold.
Terry Wilson is a wonderful Dine (Navajo) and Zuni Pueblo artist. His mighty male African lion is in a reposed state. Ever watchful eyes are from inlaid turquoise, whiskered chops are plump, an incised mane is full, while lovely clawed paws and a luxuriously thick tail are brought to the fore in this sumptuous work of art. The Picasso marble specimen is rich with golden hues and beautiful blotches of black and grey. Terry continues to inspire us away with his carving prowess. A stunning realism and an acute attention to detail make this approximate 3 3/8" long, 1 1/4" wide and 1 1/4" tall fetish a museum-quality work.
