Onyx Bird, Hummingbird by Russell Shack, Deceased

$ 72.00

A greenish gray and red sienna veined onyx hummingbird with jet inlaid eyes and sterling silver inlaid beak, carved by the late Russell Shack. Russell has incised lines to convey feathers on the wings and tail as well as incising ovals around the bird's eyes. A bird’s ability to travel freely above the earth, migrate over vast distances and occupy an astonishing array of terrestrial habitats make it a powerful symbol of freedom. Hummingbirds are revered by the Zuni - they consider them messengers who have the ability to stop time.
Artist: Russell Shack, Deceased (signed)
Size: 7/8 in. wide x 1-3/4 in. long x 1-1/4 in. tall
