Beautiful Hand Carved Mountain Lion Fetish in Mother of Pearl with a Turquoise Heart Line and eyes. The Artist did a fantastic job of carving the natural aspects of the mother of pearl to show on the back of the lion. The tail wraps around and over his back. This very intricately carved lion is by Zuni Artist Andres Quandelacy. He started carving in High School and is from the Zuni Pueblo in New Mexico. The Mountain Lion represents leadership, resourcefulness, courage and high standards. He is one of the six directional guardians and he represents North.
