Antler Bird, Horned Owl by Raymond Tsalate

$ 1,500.00

An antler Katchina owl dancer with gold-lip and penn shell inlaid eyes & dark mother-of-pearl inlaid mouth. The owl dancer performs at the buffalo or bear dance - invoking vitality for human & animal life. Carved by Ray Tsalate and delivered to Sunshine Studio in January of 2020, this dancer has burnished horned tuft feathers with a gold-lip feather attached on top with a sterling silver loop. On the back of the carving are burnished wings and tail feather tips - Ray utilized a tear shape chip carve technique to symbolize the feathers on back and the wings create a heart shape. The owl wears a striking necklace and a kilt with a snake emblazoned on it - with gold-lip & penn shell eyes, embellished with Mediterranean coral dots.
