Lizard fetish by Bernie Laselute, Picasso marble
Lizard fetish by Zuni artist Bernie Laselute, made of Picasso marble, with turquoise inlay eyes. Measures 1 3/4" long, 1/2" tall, and 3/4" wide at the widest part. Artist's name is carved on the bottom. Very detailed and beautiful carving, and the lizard is in an interesting pose with its tail making a loop.
Lizards are quick, agile, and survivors, and a symbol of the desert.
