Zuni Fetish Necklace
- Fabric & Care
This is a Zuni fetish necklace with 38 delicate, stylized carvings of foxes, bears, birds, fish, frogs, and ducks interspersed between shell heishe beads. The fetishes are hand-carved from shell, turquoise, jet, catlinite, serpentine, spiny oyster, and onyx.
In a time when the Zuni tribe lived from agriculture and hunting, the hunters would always bring these amulets with them. The fetishes assure benevolence of the soul. Each animal represents its spirit, its own inner force and protects its owner.
