Pueblo: Zuni Pueblo

Al “Runner” Lasiloo began carving fetishes in the 1980s. Although his carvings are generally not as detailed as some, Lasiloo uses this relative simplicity to emphasize the properties of the stone he has chosen to carve. Labradorite is his favorite stone to carve and the bear is his favorite animal. Lasiloo creates carvings not only from stone, but from wood and shell as well. Lasiloo’s brothers, Stewart and Lloyd, are also carvers.
