Wonderful Zuni maiden Hand Carved from a rare orthoceras fossil with turquoise inlaid face and necklace with incised dragonflies. This orthoceras fossil came from Morocco and is between 250 and 400 million years old. Faye was an internationally renowned Zuni fetish carver who graduated from the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, where she studied under Allan Houser the great Hopi sculpture.
