This dancing bear has Turquoise inlaid claws. A technique this artist learned from his late brother Colvin Peina. This bear has Turquoise eyes and his necklaces are of Turquoise, Lapis and Mediterranean Coral. Another impressive motif from the ancient ruins of Hawikuh. This Parrot design was taken from a pottery that was excavated. Inlaid materials are many Copper round wire, Turquoise, Lapis, Mediterranean Coral, Malachite, Sonoran Sunrise, Abalone, Red and Orange Spiny Oyster Shell, Pink Mussel Shell, Green Serpentine and Pen Shell. Black Jet Pigment is the inlay for the Parrot and pottery design.
