Summary: "Leekya Deyuse emerged in the early to mid-1900s as Zuni Pueblo's most recognized commercial carver. A pioneer in the carving of turquoise and coral, he is considered by many to be Zuni's master jeweler of his time. Leek's excellence in carving reached a high point by the 1950s, with his work acquired for museum and private collections worldwide. Leekya's work is relentlessly sought after by scholars and collectors. But research into this enigmatic artist's history raises questions. Was he influenced by the work of ancestral Zuni carvers? Was Leekya also a silversmith, or a maker of mosaic and inlay jewelry? Did his work change over time? With this book, we learn how Leekya's work has brought wide-reaching appreciation for the Zuni carving tradition"--Fresco Books website.
