Antler And Lapis Butterfly Maiden by Raymond Tsalate

$ 1,000.00

An outstanding tableau depicting a cream and prominent brown antler butterfly maiden floating above a marsh with one mother-of-pearl cattail and flower. This lovely maiden was carved in early May of 2020 by Ray Tsalate at Sunshine Studio's request. The maiden "floats" on the small antler base thanks to a thick gage copper wire. Copper wire is used to create the stalk for the lovely cattail as well. It is Ray's hope that the copper will eventually turn green with time. The maiden has penn shell inlaid eyes, a coral inlaid mouth and a bob hair style. The maiden wears a necklace composed of four hand made Mediterranean coral dots, three Sleeping Beauty Mine turquoise dots, two malachite, two jet, two lapis and one variscite dot. A kilt is worn like a shawl with seven coral dots inlaid between two lines inlaid with lapis located near the edge of the kilt. The pièce de résistance are the four lapis wings.
