Black Marble Bird, Horned Owl by Robert Michael Weahkee

$ 135.00

A black marble 'egg' carved into a horned owl by the ever inventive Robert Michael Weahkee. The turquoise inlaid eyes pop due to the black coloration as does the fine offering bundle strapped around the girth with sinew. The Zuni believe the owl can see what others can not - they assist in helping to root out deception and they can get to the essence of true wisdom. The feathery tufts or horns on the owl's head are considered signs of spiritually powerful beings for many tribes.
