This charming serpentine turtle is classic Pete Sr.(d) and Dinah Gasper, with the turquoise inlaid nostrils and eyes. Their unique silver signature disk is attached on the bottom. Dinah Gasper comes from a very illustrious and cherished lineage. She is the daughter of Edna Leki (d) and granddaughter of Teddy Weahkee (d) and Old Man Acque (d). Lena Boone, another gifted carver, is her sister whose husband, Rignie Boone (d) also carved fetishes and was related to Leekya Deyuse (d).

Pete and Dinah’s carving is nicely polished and has clearly defined details on the shell, feet and mouth. This turtle is old, in perfect condition, and was donated to The Keshi Foundation by a serious collector to assist our projects in Zuni Pueblo. The turtle measures 2 inches long and 1 1/8 inches wide. A signed piece. $105. No Tax. Free Shipping in the USA.
