I absolutely LOVE this piece. I researched more to find out about Chasqui, and what it represented. I also wanted to learn about serpentine stone. The messenger seemed to need the companionship of a fierce puma also crafted by this gifted artisan. They make a wonderful pair, and seem to be made for each other. I gave them a couple of smokey quartz crystals to guard together on my shelf.
