Serpentine w Turquoise Bead Accents

Cheryl Beyuka,  Zuni Pueblo Fetishes

Nice little Mountain Lion from Cheryl.  Serpentine comes in many colors and patterns. This is in the color family of mottled mustard-yellow.  There is an inclusion on the upper right back. 

At time of posting, I had a significantly larger version by Cheryl.  It has a really nice stone with more inclusions on it. I have included two photos here with both mountain lions so you can see a comparison and size perspective of each.  IMPORTANT: The only item being sold on this page is the smaller of the two.

The Zuni, the mountain lion is the most powerful of the hunting animals and yellow is the color of the north, representing the elder brother of the animals of the other directions.

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