Destry Suitza picked a piece of bituminous coal, jet, to carve this dynamic raven mother with her two chicks. Zunis have always used jet for their fetishes and many have been found in prehistoric sites in Zuni Pueblo and Pueblo Bonito at Chaco Canyon. This raven family is artfully emerging from the jet black stone with the two chicks facing each other and the mother’s wings protecting them. Destry carved intricate detail in the wings, tails and faces. The natural turquoise eyes are inlayed. A beautiful signed piece. The ravens measure 2 1/4 inches tall and 2 inches wide. $150. No Tax.
