A curious wolf pup standing at attention.
His eyes are inlaid Black Pen-Shell with Green Serpentine pigment around his eyes. The necklace is composed of natural materials such as Kingman Turquoise, Lapis, Malachite, Mediterranean Coral and Variscite. The ears and tail are burnished to give detail.
Over his body are double lines of Green Serpentine pigment symbolizing Fur. The depiction is inspired by excavated pottery from the ancient ruins surrounding Zuni Pueblo.
Wolf represents Knowledge and a strong family bond.
