This is a very cool bird carving, a raven in flight to be exact - the most common bird found in the American Southwest and the Four Corners area. It is crafted from a piece of Zuni rock, a local travertine whose exact location is kept as a family secret. Many carvers in the Leekya family like to utilize this stone to produce their fetish carvings.

Hayes has inlaid the eyes of the bird with trademark penshell and the fetish is signed H L Zuni on the base of the carving. The wings are inlaid with abalone shell.This is a very unusual and seldom-seen pose for ravens and is inlaid as well, so do not let it slip from your hands and NOT be a part of your Zuni fetish collection!
