Zuni fetishes are animal carvings that have been used by the A:Shiwi (The People) for over a thousand years. By honoring the animals and acknowledging their natural traits, we may summon our own similar attributes. Fetishes are sometimes used that way today. We can focus on the qualities we have that are like a certain animal such as the bushytails (Wolves
) in LaVies Natewa's pairing. Carved from turquoise and Picasso marble, they have lovely sgraffito-etched tails and eyes from either cultured opal or turquoise inlays. About 2" long, 5/8" wide and 3/4" tall.
