Brian Yatsattie Fordite Mountain Lion Fetish

Item #
$ 469.99

Eye- catching mountain lion Hand Crafted by elite zuni fetish carver Brian Yatsattie from a spectacular specimen of Fordite with jet inlaid eyes. Fordite, also known as Detroit agate or Motor agate is old automotive paint which has hardened sufficiently to be cut and polished. It was formed from the build up of layers of enamel paint slag on tracks and skids on which cars were hand spray painted (now an automated process) and which have been baked numerous times. Enterprising workers who recognized their potential value chipped off these waste products and saved them to be turned into jewelry later. Fordite can sell for almost as much as gold going for between $1 and $5 per gram. This batch of Fordite is called Fire Truck Fordite because of all the red that is present from painting fire trucks on the line that it came from. Order this rare and unique carving now and discover the magic of owning a Zuni mountain lion fetish crafted from Fordite. Signed B Yatsattie. 4 1/2" long- 7/8" tall- 1/2" thick. 100% money back satisfaction
