We have enjoyed this creative, prize-winning, carver’s delightful dragonflies, frogs, maidens and raccoons. Now, still carved from naturally shed elk antler, he brings us a definitely non-traditional carving of…..a unicorn!
The subject of medieval tapestries, ballads and stories has become a charming, even cuddly, carving. He has darkened hooves, a flowing mane, turquoise eyes, and an appropriately twisted horn.
Of course, the artist has taken wonderful advantage of the antler’s natural markings, and burnished it to a creamy luster, as well. Behold the first Native unicorn!
He looks a bit dazed to have emerged from fairy tales into Zuni Pueblo, but is as friendly and adorable as can be.
A truly unusual, appealing and collectible piece by this celebrated carver. Be the lucky owner of this mythological and cross-cultural marvel!
