Keli'i Eli's roaring pueblo Mountain-lion is an incredible work! Carved of serpentine, this in-motion feline has pueblo and landscape inspired designs on either side, with turquoise and red coral inlay, plus Dragonfly friends hovering about. The long tail is presented in the old-style, up and over the backside, and inlaid with alternating pieces of red coral and turquoise. This feline's plump paws are inlaid with either red coral or turquoise. A lovely heartline is inlaid with turquoise, red coral and lapis on the head and neck area. About 9 5/8" long, 3 3/4" tall and 2 1/8" wide, with red coral inlaid eyes. This large cat will command any room it visits!
