Abalone, Turquoise & Picasso Marble Turkey by Randy Lucio

$ 575.00

A fantastic clam carved turkey with mosaic style abalone and clam inlaid wings & tail feathers carved with spectacular panache by Randy Lucio! The turkey is mounted to a Picasso marble base for added support and we are happy to receive this tom just in time for Friends Giving 2021! This amazing turkey has a turquoise inlaid face with dark mother-of-pearl inlaid eyes. There is an elaborate apple coral inlaid wattle. Wattles allow a turkey to cool down - they are thick with capillaries and veins for the overheated blood to pass through. Randy has added turquoise chips to the back of the shell/tail and he has tied a small dark brown cord around the juncture of the turquoise neck to the shell body. The turkey is honored and hunted in Zuni - celebrated for it's gift of sustenance to the tribe. At the same time, the turkey teaches the Zuni to nurture this food source so that it is sustainable.
