About Zuni Fetish Carvings
Zuni fetish carvings that are offered for sale are based on the cultural use of small animal carvings by the Zuni people. I prefer to call these "carvings," vs. "fetishes," because they serve no cultural or religious use. They are made to sell to collectors. However, you will find that most fetish carvings represent animals known to the Zuni. Full Article

The little hummingbird fetish flew in today and it is a wonderful work of art. Thank you so much for getting it to me safe and sound. It has a special place next to my native American flute. - L
