A traditional mountain lion is carved of black marble in this gorgeous piece by Zuni artist Stewart Alonzo. The piece features a small medicine bundle tied around its midsection featuring a mother of pearl arrow, as well as a turquoise piece and coral piece, while the remainder of the mountain lion comprises black marble with a turquoise arrow accent, called a heart line, running from mouth to almost the center of the body. Its eyes also feature turquoise accents. Mountain lions, in many Native American cultures, symbolize power and resourcefulness, loyalty, leadership, independence, protectiveness, spiritual intensity, and intuition. 9 1/2″ long x 1/2″ wide x 1 1/8″ tall.
