"Old Man" Leonard Halate (Deceased)
Zuni Fetish Collection


Old Man Halate (Deceased) was a Zuni legend. He would wonder the Pueblo, seemingly
 in another world. He rarely spoke. He expressed himself through his carving.
Leonard passed away some years ago. The few carvings Leonard made during
 those last years of his life were bought as soon as they were made.
These are rare Zuni treasures.

Leonard Halate lived in another time and his carvings are a
reflection of that time.

For a short time after Leonard's death, a few copies were made by some of
Leonard's family. They attempt to recreate the original Leonard Halate fetish
carvings... the copies have a charm of their own but are not the orginal
Leonard Halate's.
