Destry Siutza, Zuni Fetish Carver

What a great piece, carved from a large bone. It has multiple areas of focus and amazing detail (zoom into the different photos for close-ups). I'm guessing, but I assume it came from an elk. 

One of the most prominent of the extended Laate family of carvers, Destry is the Brother-in_Law to Derrick Kaamassee.  Derrick is related to the late Pernell Laate,  Elton Kaamasee, Ruben & Esteban Najera, Max Laate, Lewis Malie, Calvin Weeka, Jerrold Lahaleon, and Alvert Lamy. You can see the influences in his work.

Please check the dimensions-the photos are extreme close-ups 
This is a  medium-large piece
