Zuni Rock (travertine) Olla Dancer by Enrike Leekya

$ 145.00

Our first golden ocher and gray streaked Zuni rock travertine Olla dancer with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Enrike Leekya balancing a water jar on top while dancing & holding clam shell feathers. The Olla maidens remain true to their tribal values and heritage. "In Zuni, the belief is that everything is balanced," says Olla maiden Loretta Beyuka. "We pay homage to our ancestral women," she says, explaining that the women who came before them were responsible for hauling water in huge, heavy olla watering jars balanced on their heads — for the tribe's gardens and other needs.
