Stewart is the son of Ellen and Dixie Quandelacy. He started carving in grade school, as did most of his brothers and sisters (Andres, Avery, Barlow, Sandra, Dickie, Wilmer, Faye, and Georgia Quandelacy, and Albenita Yunie). He was born in 1949 and learned how to carve from his mother. His style is traditional yet has a unique flare! This mountain lion was carved out of green turquoise and then was inlaid with sleeping beauty turquoise for the heartline and eyes. A beautiful piece to add to any collection!


Mountain Lion medicine involves lessons on the use of power in leadership. It is the ability to lead without insisting others follow and the understanding that all beings are potential leaders. It is the delicate balance of body, mind and spirit. It is the courage to stand on your convictions and follow your heart. This is the medicine of the negotiators and peacekeepers.
