Zuni Azurite & Zuni Travertine Reptile

By Gayla Eriacho

This offering is sold.
Gayla Eriacho's collectible Turtle is carved from wonderful materials indigenous to Zuni Pueblo. She's used one specimen of Zuni travertine overlaid with colorful Zuni azurite to produce this reptile. Its darling bulging eyes are of inlaid pen shell. Gayla incised animal prints around the circumference of this reptile, perhaps belonging to a Bear or a turtle. About 2 3/4" long, 1 3/4" wide and 1 3/8" tall.
