Howlite Mountain Lion by Rickson Kalestewa

$ 75.00

A white and grayish brown veined howlite mountain lion with jet dot eyes inlaid into the raised eye sockets as well as jet inlaid nostril holes, smile and claws. This lion is carved in the unique style that is Rickson Kalestewa's and his alone! Rickson has added a tail that wraps around the lion's right side, ending just below the face. Rickson has also carved a bowl from the same stone that the lion holds in its front two paws. The bowl seems to be a prayer for rain for there is a thundercloud inlaid to the top and a lightning bolt added on the front of the jar - standing out because Rickson has placed it between the lion's inlaid front claws. For the Zuni, the lion - who is considered the guardian of the north - is the master hunter, revered for his intelligence, prowess and strength of will.
