Hot licks from a little guitar inlaid in shiny silver, with fiery, natural red coral, sunny, gleaming yellow mother of pearl, and bright blue turquoise. Lines of black jet delineated the various colors and designs.
A lady famed for her inlay work for over 30 years, Ola delights in using traditional Zuni materials in new ways. This guitar is meticulously realistic in shape, and vibrantly inlaid with historically conventional Zuni stones and shells; a delightful blend of creativity, innovation and tradition. The technique is all traditionally hand made. Notice the beautiful beveling and unusual shape of the turquoise at the end.
An exemplary piece of Zuni hand work, and a handsome piece for your musician, music lover, and lover of creative tradition – maybe that’s even you!
