This is another from our recently acquired estate collection. And when Dave and I began collecting in the late 1990s on one of our early trips to Zuni, we met Vern and his wife and were introduced to them by their son, Travis.
Vern had several aquariums and seem to be fascinated by marine life which is clearly evident when you look at his carvings. We have had angel fish, turtles, bass and other aquatic life.
This handsome carving is made from a piece of turquoise that is mostly gray matrix. It is a pair of sea turtles that are detailed down to their shells and scaly flippers. The eyes of both turtles are inlaid with red coral. Their facial features are really stunning, highly detailed and accurate. You can see each of their beaks very clearly. It is this kind of detail that we have come to expect from Vern's work, and the very thing that makes it so highly sought after.
The carving it signed on the bottom Vern Nieto Zuni."
