Enrike's Zuni travertine Bobcat (or wildcat) is about 3" long, 1" wide and 2 1/2" tall. This exquisite variety of travertine is found in the Zuni area. Turquoise inlaid eyes are sweet as is its turquoise nose overlay. A segment of natural branch red coral and a carved turquoise point comprise the offering bundle.
