Calvin Weeka - Lizard Sculpture

Circa 2000

I have not seen Calvin Weeka for years. 

In many ways, the turn of the millennium was the zenth of Zuni fetish carving.  Young, highly skilled carvers emerged... men like Maxx and Pernell Laate, Colvin Peina, Staley Natewa, Herbert Him, Wilfred Cheama, Lance Cheama and others...  They carved in a new, highly detailed, lifelike style that seemed to make stone come alive.

Calvin Weeka was not as recognized name. Nevertheless, his sculptures are every bit as incredible.

As these detail carvers were appearing and gaining fame, great traditional fetish carvers, many of whom remembered the early days of the great American West Expansion...  were still here and working as they did fifty years ago.

Consider this piece Epic.  It is a very fine sculpture of that period.

The Lizard Sculpture measures 5 1/2" x 4 3/4".

It was made from one large Green Serpentine Stone

It is signed by the artist, Colvin Weeka
