This offering is sold.
Zuni Pueblo tradition teaches there are Six Directions in life, assigning a color and animal to each one. Long ago, the Father of Medicine Societies, Po-shai-an-kia established predatory animals as guardians of the Six Directions, each associated with a different color. They are regarded as healing and protective. Ernie Mackel III's all in one Six-Directional carving consists of a jet Mole with turquoise inlaid eyes, accompanied by a turquoise Bear, a mother-of-pearl Wolf, a spiny Badger, a gold lip shell Mountain-lion, and an abalone Eagle. These tiny animals are exquisitely carved. Eyes are inlaid with either turquoise or jet. Ernie also attached a lovely turquoise point. Measurements are approximately 2 3/4" long, 1" wide and 1" tall.
