Antler Bird, Turkey by Chris Peina

$ 54.00

Our first turkey carved by Chris Peina. Chris has given this gray antler turkey jet inlaid eyes and he incised the wings and tail with descriptive lines that convey feathers, in different creative patterns. There is a small base created from the same horn - Chris chose to leave the outer shell creating a contrast in colors. Chris learned to carve from Rochelle Quam. The turkey is honored and hunted in Zuni - celebrated for it's gift of sustenance to the tribe. At the same time, the turkey teaches the Zuni to nurture this food source so that it is sustainable. Thus Zuni hunters must acquire licenses.
