Carved Antler Crab By Maxx Laate ~ Zuni

Striking crab carved of antler by well known Zuni artist Maxx Laate.

Maxx and Pernell fostered their ideas and techniques among a large number of nephews and their friends. Maxx will accept any challenge to create any image.  Working with the precision of a watchmaker, he adds intensity, motion and gracefulness to his carvings. His images of North American game animals show keen detail from his personal observations.  Early on, he successfully tackled Africa game animals. Some of his recent carvings are of spiders, fish, lobsters and also just heads of animals or birds. Watching Maxx begin a carving: He carefully examines a small section of antler to see what spirits might be unlocked.  He then proceeds to release the spirit into a provocative, well-balanced creation.  For special requests, he will search through his antler stack for the ideal piece to carve. He currently works along side his older brother Willard, in a small outdoor studio amidst the family enclave at the foot of towering sacred Dowallene Mountain. ~ Best of Zuni.

A great carving by a talented Zuni artist.
