Large wolf fetish Hand Carved by Francis Leekya from a pale gray-blue and white mottled specimen of angelite (Peruvian anhydrite), This traditional style wolf has his head upturned and canted slightly to it's right, inlaid turquoise eyes, incised nostril holes, thick body, long tail straight back and slightly to the animal's left, plus an impressive offering bundle of a large ( 1 3/4") gem grade, leaf-shaped turquoise arrow point surmounted by a large 1 1/8" piece of deep red "oxblood" coral branch. Carved in July of 2001 this large wolf is one of only four carvings Francis ever made in the scarce and expensive angelite stone. Francis was the son of Leekya Deyuse, brother of Sarah Leekya  and Alice Leekya Homer and father to Carvers Delvin, Hayes and Freddie Leekya. He did all his carving with only one functional arm. Very important historical piece- so buy it now and own some Zuni art history.  4" long- 2" tall- 1 3/8" wide. 100% money back satisfaction guarantee. Certificate of authenticity included.
