Like many Zuni carvers, Rickson Kalestewa
is carrying forward a tradition set in motion generations ago.

However, Rickson’s visions are more then traditional.

While his carvings most definitely retain the Zuni respect
for nature, animals and fetishism.

His fetishes have an abstract spirit – full of playful charm.

The mark of the finest carvers is there ability to give life
to each individual fetish.  This is true of even the smallest Rickson
carving.  Each Rickson stands as an original work made with
care, love, and spirit.
