Serpentine Mountain Lion by Marnella Kucate

$ 85.00

A small muted cream and gray streaked serpentine mountain lion with turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Marnella Kucate in a style inspired from early excavated carvings found in Zuni ruins - with the tail wrapping lyrically over the back. Marnella has added an offering bundle to the top of the lion's back with sinew featuring a gold-lip mother-of-pearl arrow head, turquoise and coral beads, penn and melon shell heishi. For the Zuni, the lion represents the guardian of the north - he is the master hunter, revered for his intelligence, prowess & strength of will. A lion is a symbol of strength and courage, but also of leadership and wisdom with unique heightened powers of sight and smell.
Artist: Marnella Kucate
Size: 2-1/4 in. long x 1/2 in. wide x 1 in. tall
