Roadrunner fetish by Karen Zunie, Picasso marble
Zuni fetish carving of a roadrunner, handmade by Native American artist Karen Zuni. This fetish is 1 1/4" tall, 3" long, and 5/8" wide. Made of Picasso marble with inlay turquoise eyes. The fetish is signed on the bottom. Very detailed, with the roadrunner in an active pose, with a great shape to it.
Roadrunners are not used in Zuni religious ceremonies, but they are one of the animals from around the world that Zuni fetish carvers make, to showcase their creativity, ingenuity, and skill.
