A family of seven Owls
gather in what's known as a parliament. These respected raptors are referred to as "the Night Grandfathers" by the Zunis because they do their work at night. Fabulously carved from one piece of bone, Maxx Laate's owl grouping is about 1 1/2" wide and 1 1/4" tall. Each raptor has turquoise inlaid eyes and one bird looks skyward.
