Leonard was best known later in his life for his dinosaur carvings and for utilizing found objects (combs, pieces of plastic) as part of his artistic creations. It's been said (and I don't know if it is true or not) that Whoopi Goldberg collected his work before he passed away.
We have another Halate necklace currently on the site, a double strand. It's quite an amazing thing for a serious collector to be able to add pieces of this magnitude to a collection. While the contemporary carvers are faithful to tradition and equally talented to their ancestral forefathers, there's a lot to be said for the old time way of doing things. Just holding these old timer treasures in your hands is a gift and privilege.
I've recently acquired some wonderful new things that will be showing up on the site between now and Christmas. We also have a small supply of the hard cover copy of our book, just in time for gift giving. We hope you'll keep us in mind when the Christmas Spirit comes knocking.
Darlene and I send you our best wishes, as always.
