Dinah is the sister of Lena Boone and they both were strongly influenced by the
carving style of therr mother, Edna Leki (d.). This is a bulky frog made from black and white Picasso
marble and weighs in at a hefty 6.1 ounces! It is a quirky piece of that Utah stone having angular
chunks in the mix which is kind of unique for Picasso.
It was made later in their shared carving careers having the silver medallion
that they started utilizing just before the departure of Pete (d.). He is greatly missed by the
collecting community as well as the family and the tribe.
The eyes and nostrils are inlaid of Sleeping Beauty turquoise and the elaborate
offering bundle consists of a Mother-of-pearl arrowhead with branch red coral, turquoise and heishe
beads tied with sinew. The sterling badge is initialed in their trademark way G with small P over
a D. These Pete and Dinah pieces will become more and more difficult to find as the hardcore
collectors whittle down the number of these pieces left on the market. Do not miss this opportunity
to add a hefty piece of Zuni fetish carving history to your fetish cabinet!
