Soapstone Shalako by Florentino Martinez

$ 480.00

An olive green and cream veined soapstone Shalako, just in time for the Winter Solstice, 2016! Carved by Florentino Martinez, there is a small base carved of the same stone that gives the big bird added support along with 2 tassels that come down at each corner in the front. Soapstone is softer then most stones because of the high talc content. There is no fixed hardness because the amount of talc it contains varies, but this guy carves nicely and we are told is about a 4 - 5 on the mohs scale - that's the only way Florentino could have accomplished such exquisite detail!
