Green and cream striped Onyx with heartline of turquoise and coral.
Paula says -
"The pattern in this Onyx stone is amazing. To me it makes the horse resemble a Scottish Terrier, with his long trimmed coat just grazing the ground."
Inlaid turquoise eyes.
What is a Fetish?
A fetish is a rock carving of an animal that captures the spirit and the essence of the animal, not necessarily its exact detailed conformation. Read more about fetishes.
The horse is an animal of freedom and the Horse Fetish has the power of healing, strength and safe movement.
Heart Line. The heart line is a line etched, painted or inlaid along one or both sides of the animal. It usually extends from the mouth to the region of the heart. There are many interpretations as to what a heart line represents, but it is often said to represent the pathway of the breath of the animal to the life force which is the heart. Others feel that the heart line points to the soul of the animal. It is thought that a heart line gives the fetish healing or medicinal power.
