By Keli'i Eli, Zuni-Hawaiian

Animal: Badger, Material: #8 Turquoise
This offering is sold.
Keli'i Eli is as tenacious and focused as a BADGER when it comes to capturing the true essence of his subjects. Here he has used a large piece of #8 Mine turquoise to create a stout, muscular badger. The body is planted securely behind massive shoulders. The face is at once inquisitive and snarling. The claws are dug into the earth. This badger is not going anywhere it does not want to go. About 3 1/2" long and 1 3/4" tall with eyes of inlaid jet.
