"Paula says - "In my opinion, this inlay owl set shows all the design characteristics and workmanship of being Zuni made. But because there is no hallmark that we can attribute to a specific artist we can't legally sell it as Native American made - read more.
"This set is NOS (new old stock) that was made more than a decade ago but never sold - it is brand new vintage!"
Comes with original box with label.
A night bird with a large head and large eyes. The eyes cannot move in their sockets so the owl can rotate its head up to 270 degrees. With exceptional vision, acute hearing, silent flight, Owl is a stealthy and effective hunter. Native Americans attribute Owl with wisdom and sacred knowledge and call upon Owl medicine to help them see through deception, external appearances and illusion and to discover hidden truths. Plains Indians wear owl feathers to protect against evil spirits.
