Brion Hattie has carved this adorable little lynx (only 1.5" long) from Vietnamese Fossil Jasper. You can tell from Dave's photos what a beautiful stone this is - so interesting! - but it's the flat-faced, chubbiness of this tiny bob that makes us smile.

“Edna Leki is believed to have been Zuni's first female fetish carver and is the daughter of famed fetich carver and lapidarist Teddy Weahkee. Weahkee became well-known for a style of fetish creating by removal that closely resembles historic Zuni forms. His daughters, Edna Leki and madonna Tsikewa, carried on the carving tradition, as did Edna's daughters Dinah Gasper and Lena Boone. “Leki originally worked in channel ornamentation jewelry, but when her father reached an advanced age, she assisted him in fetish carving; and, thereafter, she devoted herself to carving.
