This tiny, old style eagle by the much-loved Lena Boone, is the perfect little guy for your pocket or purse. In case no one told you .. ahem .. as a Zuni
fetish collector, you are obligated by the bylaws (of course, I'm kidding ..) to carry a small fetish with you on your person at all times so that explaining to the unbelievers is easier
and more convenient. Plus, it just makes you extra cool ..
This perfect specimen is carved of a lovely piece of turquoise that is mostly matrix, but don't let that matrix part throw you. It's like the chocolate syrup in
chocolate swirl ice cream, just a touch adds so much flavor! While a pure turquoise stone is a thing to behold, a stone with the contrasting matrix can be just as exciting! And we love
the use of this colorful, tiny specimen for Lena's eagle.
Lena has inlaid the eyes of the eagle in red coral and gifted it with a shell arrowhead and beading tied on with sinew in the traditional manner. Of course,
Lena is part of the Boone/Gasper/Leki/Weahkee families and deserves so much credit and love for helping to keep the art of Zuni fetish crafting alive and well in the Pueblo.
