The Old Way Mountain Lion

By Melvin Sandoval, San Felipe-Zuni

Animal: Mountain Lion, Material: Onyx
This offering is sold.
Mountain lion (cougar, puma or panther) is in hunting mode, ready to flush out its prey. Elegantly carved from a well-polished onyx, Melvin Sandoval's feline has its tail up and over its backside, in old-style presentation. Since both sides of this onyx specimen are fabulously different, it's like getting two felines in one. About 4" long, 1" wide and 1" tall.
