Mountain Lion - Zuni Fetish Carving
Cheryl Beyuka
Serpentine w Bundle Accents

Cheryl Beyuka,  Zuni Pueblo Fetishes

 

Beautifully formed medium-sized lion from Cheryl. Serpentine comes in many colors and patterns. I find this mottled mustard-yellow colored version is one of the more unusual and attractive of the serpentine variations.

At time of posting, I had a significantly smaller version by Cheryl.  It has a nice stone but not as interesting, with less inclusions ion 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 larger 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
