Wolf, Coyote, Fox - "Bushytail"

Orange Travertine

Peter Gasper, Native American Zuni Fetish Carver

This carving could be interpreted as either a wolf or a fox,  one of the "bushytails". Peter often makes this "fat" tail.  When this was sold to me it was represented as orange alabaster but it has ZERO translucency so I don't think that is true.  I found some of his other work where rust/orange stone was listed as California Travertine.  I honestly don't know what the stone is.

The actual color is a bit "rustier" than the photos depict.  The bundle is mother of pearl, coral, & turquoise.  This piece was made in 2011 but is just getting posted

If you are interested in learning more about fetishes, I strongly suggest both Kent McManis's and Mark Bahti's books, both can be had at Amazon

Please check the dimensions-the photos are extreme close-ups 
The photos are often MUCH larger than the actual piece
