Very special and large (6.5 pounds) six directional sculpture Hand Crafted from a form of serpentine known as "fish rock" with turquoise inlaid eyes. The Zuni Universe is divided into six regions and each region is guarded by a specific animal- North- mountain lion, South-badger, East-wolf, West-bear, Sky-eagle, Underground- mole. This world view is beautifully represented by this enchanting sculpture. Vern is one of the Old Master carvers at Zuni as exemplified by the perfect style, flow, proportion, and finish of this striking work of art. Before his passing Verne was one of the elite carvers at the Zuni Pueblo. Unfortunately, our pictures don't do this museum-quality carving justice.
