Turquoise bighorn sheep by Andres Quandelacy
Native American Zuni fetish carving of a bighorn sheep, made of turquoise with coral inlay eyes and heart line design. It is 1 3/4" long, 1" tall, and just over 1/2" wide at the widest part (horns). This fetish was handmade by Zuni artist Andres Quandelacy. Bighorn sheep are a game animal to the Zuni, and these fetishes are carved to help in hunting these animals for food and clothing.
