Marble Bird, Snow Owl by Andres Lementino

A large white marble snow owl with turquoise and jet inlaid eyes carved by Andres Lementino perched on a rock. Andres's signature double Zuni sun face is inlaid on the chest of the bird - with bits of turquoise & clam shell creating the 'sun rays' & turquoise,spiny oyster, jet and clam shell creating the sun face portion. The Sun face is an ancient symbol in Zuni culture, representing the sacred Sun Father. To the Zuni, the Sun face represents prosperity, happiness, peace, hope, optimism, and positive energy. The owl is a symbol of wisdom - it holds intelligence and sees what others can not. They are closely related to Moon and Night. Their insight has provided them night vision. Thus, they can see the unseen.
