Staley carved in the realistic style(his mentor was legendary Zuni carver Herbert Him- still carving) & he passed away in 2003. He is most famous for his lizard, horned toad & snake carvings. Staley had two types of skins that he produced for his reptiles, the less produced hand-checkered style which is labor intensive, much like the checkering on a fine shotgun stock as it takes a more masterful touch, more time and expertise than the quicker, easier but just as effective method of dimpling, like the surface of a golf ball. This horned toad has the hand-checkered style skin & is carved in Picasso marble, Staley's preferred carving stone & the eyes are inlaid Sleeping Beauty turquoise. Time for this guy to finally leave our vault & go into your collection- So order this horned toad now & own a piece of Zuni art history. Signed S.
