Jet Bird, Crow by Michael Coble

$ 120.00

A jet crow perched on a tree stump with turquoise inlaid eyes that look up at the viewer. Carved by Michael Coble, there are incised lines on the wings and tail to denote feathers, contrasting nicely with the smooth, polished beak and claws. 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 as the Winter people.
