Eyes of inlaid jet.
"Dragonfly Angel "
Paula says -
"Two wonderful mountain lions carved from fishrock and with inlaid jet eyes. On top is a magnificent dragonfly with black shell and mother of pearl wings and an abalone body. All tied together with sinew and a medicine bundle of tiny coral pieces. Very special."
