Tijilite Mountain Lion by Jeff Shetima

$ 500.00

A resting mountain lion carved from a piece of caramel colored and cream spotted tijilte. Carved by Jeff Shetima, the lion's left front paw is slightly raised and he has feline like luminescent oval shaped abalone inlaid eyes with penn shell inlaid pupils. The pièce de résistance is the micro inlaid heartline placed by Jeff on the center of the back - inlaid with bits of mother-of-pearl, coral, penn shell & jet to name most. For the Zuni, the lion represents the guardian to the north & is the master hunter, revered for its intelligence, prowess & strength of will.
