If you get a chance to meet Maxx Laate be prepared to laugh uncontrolably. He has a great sense of humor,
a contagious laugh and a happy disposition that is a joy in this day and age to witness. He is a teacher of carving to the
younger generation as all carvers and carving families do as a rule. They pass on the knowledge, the techniques of the
artform and the reverence for the practices of the Ashiwi, the People. These artisans speak to stones and the stones speak
to them and when it is all said and done, there is a finished fetish carving created through the harmony and balance of man
as artist and nature as teacher. You gotta love Maxx!
Maxx has listened to the deer antler and they conspired together to create this mushroom diorama of two
tarantulas dancing and playing tag. The legs and thorax of the spiders are burnished with a torch, and the eyes are burned
into the head. The fetish is signed MAXX L on the bottom in his usual fashion. Great spider carving for insect lovers.
