Serpentine Mountain Lion Zuni Fetish
2 1/2" x 1 1/2"
Wilfred Cheama was among the first Zuni Fetish carvers to sculpt lifelike fetishes. His carvings are masterworks of realism with a high-degree of animation evident through the delicate features and posture of his creatures. Wilfred’s preferred medium is serpentine because it is hard, durable and well suited to the intricacy of his artistry.
