By Clissa Martin

Animal: Owl, Material: Serpentine
This offering is sold.
Owls can see what others cannot and this is a large part of Owl (Muhukwi) medicine. Owl’s ability to do this reminds us of the importance of both worlds: the physical as well as the spiritual. Ask Zunis about Dragonfly (Shumak'olo:wa) and they will tell you that Dragonfly is the messenger who carries prayers to Spirit World. Clissa Martin's serpentine owl with overlaid turquoise dragonfly embraces the concept of both these spirit messengers. With eyes of jet inlaid in gold lip shell this silent sentinel is about 1 1/2" tall, 7/8" wide, and 1 1/8" deep.
