Zuni Fetishes are an animal, bird or figure hand carved from stone, shell,
antler, wood or other natural materials. Zuni Fetishes were first carved
as "hunting" fetishes. When taken on a hunting expedition they would ensure
a plentiful and successful hunt. Each fetish is believed to have a spirit
within. If treated and taken care of properly Zuni Fetishes will help guide
you on the right path of life. When you purchase or are given a Zuni Fetish
it is your responsibility to care for and treat it with the proper respect
it deserves. Fetishes are believed to feed on cornmeal, so don't neglect
to feed your fetish. "Offerings" are often attached to the fetish by the
artist, however you may make your own "offering" to your fetish by attaching
a small stone or feather adornment. It will be greatly appreciated and
you will be rewarded with the healing or strength you desire. We cannot
guarantee that a fetish carving will change your life, but in our many
years of experience we have seen astonishing changes in peoples lives as
a result of their belief in the power of the fetish. Our fetishes are Zuni
carved unless otherwise noted, out of a variety of stone and shell. Prices
will vary depending on detail, artist and the medium used. With your fetish
you will receive a description of the stone used, what the animal or figure
represents and instructions on care and feeding of your new found friendPrized
for their "down to earth" beauty and spiritual renewal, fetishes have long
been an important part of Native American culture. When a fetish maker
prays over his created work, a mystical power is believed to be released
which can assist him in finding a solution to his present problems. All
Southwestern tribes make and use fetishes. However, the Zuni people have
developed a reputation for being skillful carvers. There are six cardinal
guardian fetishes which are symbolic of the six directions. The first is
a mountain lion which represents the North. The South belongs to the badger,
the West to the bear, while the East goes to the wolf. Additionally, the
mole guards the inner earth, while the eagle protects the heavenly regions.
