Enrike Leekya: Zuni Travertine, Owl


The contrast between the creamy travertine stone and the dark, iridescent shell creates a mesmerizing visual effect. This carving is not just a mere object but a symbol of strength, wisdom, and connection to nature. Owls have long been revered in many cultures for their ability to see what others do not, making this piece a powerful talisman imbued with ancient wisdom and mystique. 

Owl (Muhukwi): Owls can see what others cannot and this is a large part of Owl (Muhukwi) medicine. Owl’s ability to do this reminds us of the importance of both worlds: the physical as well as the spiritual, perhaps the known and the unknown. Our willingness and courage to transform the unknown in ourselves into the known is a true source of wisdom. The Zuni Pueblo people call the owl “the Night Grandfather” because he does his work at night. Clairvoyant properties and uncovering deception have always been associated with Owl. Its connection with wisdom comes from Owl’s ability to discern that which cannot be “seen.”
