Turquoise* Mountain Lion by Raymond Tsalate

$ 2,400.00

A fantastic Mexican Nacozari quarried turquoise mountain lion with pin point hand made Mediterranean coral inlaid eyes carved by Ray Tsalate and delivered to Sunshine Studio's front porch in February of 2022. Nacozari was the name of a mine in Sonora, Mexico - the mine is located south of the Bisbee, Arizona mine in the same mountain range but is no longer open. Ray has added a fantastic offering bundle to the top of the lion's back featuring a gold-lip mother-of-pearl eagle with pin point lapis inlaid eyes - surrounded by twenty Mediterranean branch coral beads then brown penn shell heishi. For the Zuni, the lion represents the guardian of the north - he is the master hunter, revered for intelligence, prowess & strength of will.
