Offering bundles are attached to a fetish carving by the artist. This is a way of saying thank you to that particular animal for its medicine, or what it teaches us by how it lives in nature. In this case, Kateri Quandelacy Sanchez secured an sophisticated offering of malachite, fresh water pearl, peridot, heishe shell and other elegant beads to her Turtle
(or tortoise), in gratefulness to this wonderful reptile that is esteemed because it carries its home everywhere it goes. A lovely incised carapace and kind eyes of jet are set into this approximate 2" long, 2" wide and 1 1/4" tall fetish carved of a soothing green calcite.
