Heavy and massive mountain lion Hand Carved (from dense, native, crystal-laced, pale reddish dendrite sandstone from the top of Sedona's famed Cathedral Rock mountain) in an alert pose with head cocked slightly upward and to it's right, inlaid turquoise eyes, incised nostril holes and "smile," stocky body, plus a long tail that hugs the body upward from the rump and continues along the entire back to a curl behind the head that extends down the right haunch. No offering bundle on this piece, easily among the largest/weightiest Francis could manage due to his advanced age and having only one functioning arm to heft and position the heavy stone to his grinding and polishing wheel. Francis died in May of 2003 and was the son of Leekya Deyuse, brother of Sarah Leekya and Alice Leekya Homer and father of carvers Delvin, Hayes and Freddie Leekya. This carving was originally purchased out of Sedona, AZ in January of 2002. Order this highly collectible museum quality carving now and enjoy! 5 1/8" long- 2 1/8" tall- 1 1/2" wide.
