Antler Bird, Horned Owl by Troy Sice - Zuni Fetish

$ 900.00

A fantastic horned owl carved by Troy Sice - delivered to Sunshine Studio's front porch in November of 2019. The eyes are inlaid with gold-lip and have dark mother-of-pearl pupils with the beak also carved from the same shell. Troy has burnished the 'horn' tufts as well as all around the periphery of the owl's face. On the back of the carving, Troy has burnished the top of the wings and the wing tips as well as the tail. Finally, Troy has incised feathers under the owl's face and he then inlaid the feathers with a solidified jet paste. The Zuni believe the owl can see what others can not - they assist in helping to root out deception and they can get to the essence of true wisdom. The feathery tufts or horns on the owl's head are considered signs of spiritually powerful beings for many tribes. It is common to feel spiritually activated when you see or hear an owl. They are messengers from the spirit realm - bringing wisdom, truth, and understanding of the mysteries of life.
