Wild Duck

By Justin Natewa

This offering is sold.
Ducks are admired in Zuni because they are the only birds that can swim in water, walk on land and fly in the air. Justin Natewa’s pleasing mallard duck has been assembled with carved pieces of onyx, jet, turquoise and gold lip shell. Presented on a base of sandstone with crushed azurite and turquoise to represent water, this peacefully floating, turquoise-eyed feathered friend is about 2 1/4" long, 1" wide and 2" tall.
