This is an older carving purchased from the artists in the late 90s or early 2000s and just now seeing the light of day from storage. The last few years of their carvings had sterling silver badges with the initials little P over D and big G on them. This piece of Picasso marble has a seam of crystalline material, most probably quartz, in the facial area. Otherwise the main stone colorations are blacks and browns.

The eyes and nostrils are inlaid of Sleeping Beauty turquoise and the elaborate offering bundle consists of a Mother-of-pearl arrowhead, with turquoise nuggets, red coral and heishe beads tied with sinew. It is unsigned which was the normal manner in the early 2000s and before. These fetishes are getting harder and harder to find but we have found a cache from our supplier who is liquidating his storage buildings, drawers and shoe boxes from the back room. You all need to grab what strikes your fancy while they ARE available and relatively affordable.
