Jet Bird, Crow by Delvin Leekya

$ 48.00

A plump jet crow carved by Delvin Leekya looking up at the viewer with turquoise inlaid eyes. Delvin has added three turquoise dots to each wing. The Zuni believe the crow is the keeper of sacred law. In the Zuni creation myth - when the Zunis arrived to the Middle World - what we call earth; they were given a choice between two eggs. The Zuni tribe chose the blue egg and consequently journeyed to their current homeland, destined to have a life full of toil with the crow as their guide - known forevermore as the Winter people. The other group chose the white egg & were thought to have migrated to South America and consequently are known as the Summer people. We have also been told that the crow is considered a good arbitrator due to it's ability to act as a sieve while digesting food. A crow is a symbol of life's magic and mysteries & also symbolizes intelligence, flexibility and destiny.
