View Cart

Christopher Sandoval's sleek and skillful carving style compliments the protective posture of this powerful Mountain-lion (puma, cougar or panther). Old-style presentation is seen on the tail, which resides up and over the feline's backside. Rich beads from perhaps soothing fluorite or amethyst, bright coral and golden amber adorn the offering bundle given by the artist thanking a mountain lion who in Zuni tradition, is the eldest brother and most important of the Six-Directional animals. Eyes are from lovely turquoise inlays. About 3 1/2" long, 5/8" wide and 1 1/8" tall, created from amazing Sonoran rhyolite.
