Serpentine Mountain Lion by Lorandina Sheche

$ 135.00

A cream/brownish tan serpentine plump mountain lion with round turquoise inlaid eyes carved by Lorandina Sheche. Lorandina has carved the lion in the traditional Zuni style with the tail lyrically carved in low relief extending forwards on the top of the lion's back. There is also a fantastic offering bundle strapped in front of the lion's tail with sinew featuring a black marble arrowhead with a turquoise and branch coral bead placed on both sides. For the Zuni, the lion represents the guardian of the north - he is the master hunter, revered for intelligence, prowess and strength of will. The mountain lion enjoys the prestige of being one of the most capable predators, and therefore conveys to man a spirit to refine goals, preserve, and achieve.
