Kateri Quandelacy Sanchez's mother was Georgia Quandelacy (d). Grandmother Ellen Quandelacy (d) taught all her children the art of fetish carving, as she was taught by her father Johnny Quam (d). Kateri carves remarkable fetishes with feminine strength like this reversible #8 Mine turquoise one. Wise Grandmother's fringed shawl sways as she dances, while the reverse side has four wonderful Corn Maidens etched with Corn kernels. Facial features are darkened with jet paste and red coral cabochons decorate this approximately 2 3/4" tall, 1 3/4" wide and 1" deep fine fetish.
