I am pretty sure there are no pelicans native to Zuni, but the carvers in Zuni don't seem to have that requirement. They are fascinated by, and appreciate, all of God's creatures. Joseph Zunie has carved this pelican from black marble. It is richly etched and detailed and has sharp, contemporary lines. The pelican has a gold-lipped Mother of pearl fish in its mouth and eyes inlaid of red coral. It is perfectly rendered from the tip of it's humongous beak to it's little webbed feet. A great example of the breadth of curiosity and the eye for detail that runs throughout the talented hands and hearts of Zuni. Signed, "J. Zunie, Zuni, NM".

We don't know much about Joseph Zunie, but Tracy, Annette and Karen have the same surname and are likely related.
